Why not? They were out there doing it. They didn't hit their distress beacon the first time the coffee maker didn't work.

Yes, they (or the one at least) sounds very unstable. But, they are free to do what they want with their lives. Let them go!

The problem is that they (or at least one of them) is trying to make money off a completely hokey story, which includes potentially lethal advice to other novice sailors ("activating the EPIRB will lead to jail and loss of the vessel") and lies about the vessels that provided rescue.

WharfRat summed it up nicely. ianjoub if you want them as crew then you my friend are welcome to enjoy the discussion and antics of a long conjob while your drifting around making coffee for 5 months.

Re: We should all help these poor ladies 🙄

Yes, we are all acquainted with the concept of fiction.

But that's different than trying to pass off fiction as "the true story", and canvassing for donations to sue "the media" for whatever.

If they had just disclaimered with some mumble mumble "a dramatic story inspired by true events" that would be one thing.

If they had just thanked their rescuers and disappeared, then yeah sure, let's leave 'em be. But not when they hang out a GoFundMe.

On another note: wouldn't it be fun to watch smackdaddy engage in an interview with Jennifer Appel ?

I think the most compelling reason for not allowing them on the water is because THEY HAVE NO BOAT (because she wrecked her last two). What captain would be gullible enough to give permission to board?

joub, if you want to be her sugar daddy go ahead. Their GoFundMe is still at $5, so you don't appear to have put your money where your mouth is.

Here's an update, for those of you who didn't click on the correct tab:

Thank you Mr. Clean for the interview. Longest one we have done and absolute best for teaching me new things that I will use going forward!!!
As promised, I would like to augment the Go Fund Me to ask for money to build a new boat and get back out on the water instead of going after the media for the story. If you are curious about the highlights of our excursion - go listen to the podcast from Sailing Anarchy. You can only get the real deal from them.

I still think the free entertainment was worth every penny.

I was just thinking earlier ... there's a certain "designer" based in British Columbia that would get along with Jennifer Appel just fine. He may even be on his way to Hawaii right now, in a Swain 36, the S/V Alternate Reality, and he could pick up Jennifer and they could go aground on an atoll for 5 to 15 months.
