I'm sure they're human "pets", Sal. Not my scene, but whatever floats your boat.

5000 miles... sounds like a little navigational error

And very disturbing that as a dominatrix she trains, "subs, couples ...and pets." Pets!

Now think I know why she climbed the mast when she was rescued. She might have left her ankle harness up there. To bad she did not put on a show for all the sailors on the ship. I think they would have appreciated it for their efforts.

Re: 5000 Miles off course

She's way to old for those sailors, she's old enough to be their mom. No one wants to see that. I'm not sure it matters to the story. Does it?

Re: 5000 Miles off course

Probably time for this thread to die but since it's still here I'll contribute. This may be an unpopular opinion but is there not something inspirational in this story?

I know.

Bear with me.

A summary of all the accounts here tells us that we are talking about a person with a possibly severe brain injury, who counts among her assets a failed half acre organic farm and a totally destroyed sailboat; a person who clearly has to work for her income. Yet, this woman was still able to acquire what by all accounts looks like a very seaworthy boat with a year's worth of food and a full suite of electronics.

So what's wrong with all the non brain injured people with more financial resources who so desperately want to go blue water cruising?

Granted this still looks like a very fishy story.

And they probably should have learned how to sail first...
