Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

man I have no idea how my wooden boat survived at sea then as well as countless others, by design...no wooden boat is ever 100 percent watertight and yet many of us still voyage on them and sometimes fantastically...with great seaworthy results.

the issues with the union polaris is that wood is used in structural areas that are then not integrated to the glass parts in a real good way even new, dont even get me started with the deck structure(I still have nightmares about that union 36 I checked out in panama that was abandoned)...and that was the boat builders errror and not the designers...

in any case

Im absolutely flabbergasted btw that this thread still keeps on keeping on...(so thats why Ill add some fuel to the fire, ajajajajja)

peace

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

This may sound mean, but I honestly hope the case gets thrown out in Florida as well. The case is garbage...and takes the Kaufman's focus off the real problems.

Now, I'll say this too...I've given Eric a hard time in a couple of forums - because of his attitude. Yet I fully understand I have the same kind of attitude many times. So, there but for the grace of God go I as I take my own family out into the briny. BUT...

Eric, Charlotte - take your lessons from where you've been and focus on your path ahead. This legal tack will get you nowhere.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

The legal tack may be the only way they'll get a boat back, for all I know. Some ambulance chasing lawyer has likely confirmed their insanity and is working on contingency. Other than suffering the slings and arrows of web forums, it's probably costing them nothing. Hard to imagine them not even trying, just to prove they understand their own errors.

That said, I find it rather unlikely they will win.

As I remember it, it was fully insured, and they declined the thousands people had raised for them to help them recover their personal items.

Fully insured boats are the first to be abandoned at sea.

Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico

That's interesting. Declining free money is not typical of one with major character flaws.

So on to a new hypothesis. So outraged at losing coverage right when their baby was sickest is driving a need for revenge.

I can keep making these up, if it helps.

I would go with broken boat, realizing they would never make it, their kid got sick, not getting better, they got a free, safe ride home, and insurance gave them enough to replace the boat with a better one.

People that followed it from day 1 knew that they had delaminated decks, and other major issues with the boat.

This is why the man did not stay behind to single-hand the boat back to port. Because their boat was a piece of junk. I will take an SSB or HAM radio over a sat phone any day, thou we will most likely pick up a spot phone to call people at home.

Why do you find it unlikely that they will win?

The company's contract was pretty clear. They covered their bases well.
