Re: BFS Proponent Rescued at Sea
So, 5-1/4 years after his first call for rescue...he still hasn't learned to check the voltmeter and make sure the engine is charging once in a while? Enters a major event like the Sidney Hobart without checking the electrics are working beforehand?
it is so nice to know some things never change. I supposed Captain Kirk never poked his head around the antimatter reactors either, but small boat skippers usually don't have engineers to rely on, either.
Makes you wonder how sailors got by in the days before electricity.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
