Re: Do not pick up illegal migrants in the Med!

It seems there is something really fishy here:

Two completely different subjects IMO and probably two different threads, though the 'suspicious boat' (pirate?) thing had been hashed to death on this and every other forum. If you are interested I believe there is a search feature on the page somewhere.
Yeah, I donít really understand what this seaman is on about.

Re: Do not pick up illegal migrants in the Med!

Seems entirely straightforward to me.

Read the title.

That POV being pushed, is the purpose of the post.

This news item fit that narrative.

That is all. Super simple.

The news item DOES NOT fit the thread narrative. But thatís not what Iím referring to via affirming Captaís comments.

Actually, a Mayday relay addressed to all stations, or no one in particular might be appropriate.
Good point. I guess "the authorities" would have been the right thing to say, rather than "the U.S. Coast Guard" huh? I was thinking about all the Hatian and Cuban refugees we've been getting here in Florida my entire life.

Sorry Dad. I fully blame the fact that my boat was supposed to splash this past week, but it's been bumped to next week. I'm bored.

Sorry, I meant the OP's perception of the news item fit their intention to spread the narrative indicated by the title.

An incident with some similarities

Actually you, nor anyone else, are mind readers. You cannot know, or ever know what I perceive, think, understand etc.



I have sailed the Med. My boat is in London and every time I cross the Channel I am boarded by the Navy/CG* etc searching for illegals. When I slip back into the Med the chance of coming a cross people floating in the water increases.

My perceptions may be 'wrong' to some, but by jingo, by crikey, I'm thinking about them more than people not sailing these waters.

Maybe I should have added an extra clarification and put it in the Med sub-forum. I sure wasn't expecting Cuba to pop up in this thread! I was certainly expecting people to be more up to date on the Med situation.




* Not the fricken US Navy or the USCG! but the UK, French, Dutch navy's
