    PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR RAINMAKER'S CREW

    You must not be reading the same thread I am. 90% of the posts are from trolls who could care less about the truth or the people involved. They are just Jealous little bitches that will never be able to afford a gunboat or talented enough to be hired to sail one so they choose to slander and belittle those that are doing things they only dream about.

    Wess - you seem to have missed the point, so I'll repeat it for you.... It seems that it is OK to mercilessly humiliate HR, but we can't say anything about the GB abandonment - please explain beyond sycophantic sucking up. Are you really that stupid? Or is your agenda blinding common sense?

    Is that you Peter J? thank you for the compliment but No. I do not now nor have I ever worked for Peter or Gunboat I have actually never even met the man or touched a gunboat I did stay on a holiday in express once if that counts.

    I think someone hit the nail on the head “this is nothing but a witch-hunt” If I was in marketing @ Gunboat not only would I no longer post here I would pull all advertisement. Yes a rich guy bought an expensive boat and abandoned it sooner than most of you would have. He calculated the risk and made the choice. Yes with my sailing experience I would not have made the choice to enter out in that weather forecast I know my limitations and for me personally I would have waited. I personally would much rather read about a boat being prematurely abandoned then read about 5 dead sailors that could have been rescued but chose to stay so they would not be flamed on the internet by a bunch of keyboard sailors. I have read from another news source that the salvage team that was contracted to retrieve her is in possession of rainmaker and making way back to port.
  6. So does that mean there were 5 plus 1 potential person rescued? How crazy were they to do this with a mom-to-be aboard? 1I fucked up my attribution. Thanks to MaxHeadroom for the correction. If this "Valery tozer" is for real, this is just incredible. It confirms all the speculation here about the intelligence level of HR . . . and his friends and "first mates." Effing unbelievable. There may be a Valerie Tozer in Sausalito, California. http://www.weareatheism.com/valery-tozer/ http://m.okcupid.com/profile/valerytozer?cf=regular https://www.facebook.com/WeAreAtheism/posts/132327590199769 https://twitter.com/valerytozer If all of this is true, Hot Rod certainly assembled an interesting crew. Ok after further information I take back my original comment no I would not invite these people aboard my boat…. Wow maybe the meth comment was not too far off…..

    I`d sail with soma anytime, and bet I would learn plenty. Keith I am right there with yea i would love to spend a afternoon over a couple beers picking his brain or just listening to some of his experiences. I would settle for a ride on his F40.
  8. First, Hot Rod Lane.. You survived and you did not kill anyone. You made many mistakes and ignored guidance offered. Wish you would have invested all that money in one of the many boat building plans and kits or one of the boats in need of restoration but you had to do it your way I really hope you have learned a valuable lesson from this. Keep chasseing your dreams don’t ever give up nothing wrong with asking for directions along the way learn from the people who have already made these mistakes. Best of luck to you. This thread has taught me a lot about my fellow sailors. Some of you reached how to HR and tried to help him not just criticize him. That is the sailing community I have always enjoyed these are the type of people I have found in most marinas around the world. One of the reasons I love this lifestyle. Most pointed fingers, slung insults made wild accusations (meth really?). I would invite HR, Rebelheart and remis or are any of the others you have belittled on my boat over you pompous arrogant assholes I would bet they are more entertaining and fun to be around.
