    Moovie Review Threade

    I went to see BR 2049 in SONY 4k on the big screen.... yep visually me likey.... though think too the sound FX were a tad over-the-top oppressive perhaps my ears are too sensitive? Certainly has the weidest sex scene ever... then again pleasure bots are defo the future'ish.... how they fare in an EMP strike? I still think this is Denis Villeneuve's best film in the last few years... Ms. Blunt shining throughout....

    SCIENCE!

    The sticking block to the Paris climate accord 2015/16 was India... who have a lot of coal and want to burn it.... Their argument was 1st world countries have been doing it for 150 years (burning fossil fuels for energy).... and with hundereds of millions of their peeps still lacking electric power... they simply can't afford a clean alternative... Its touched on by Leo's doc... Luckily for them the the Golden Golem of Greatness and his appointed advisors has turned his back on all the options that would help limit the increasing planetary damage... Burn.... baby.... burn.

    Middle Sea race

    Well the bigly winds kicked in last night as expected.... and Rambler and Mike's boyz on Leopard have taken full advantage... Before the wind fizzles should lead to some spectacular down wave SOG numbers... R88 docking this evening?

    *What’s the strategy for Rambler to overstand that far ?* NEMS 4km suggest stronger winds at 02:00 about level where they are now on the tracker....

    VOR 2017-18

    For a nano-second or two I couldn't figure how the f...k it was 1450nm Alicante to Lisbon....? So is the turn point pre Madeira i.e. Ilha de Porto Santa?

    Rambo is well clear.... the bigger question is has the rest of the fleet figured out the BASTARDO....?

    Sometime Life Bites You in the Ass

    You are what you eat The ideal body weight for a 6’6” man = 193 - 235 lbs If you suffer with knee issues, then the lighter the better would make perfect sense… so think a target weight > 200lbs. If you are more than that you know what to do. A contact of mine who has suffered from heart disease his Dr. recommended Q10 as a daily supplement. I would also suggest Glucosamine as it’s an aid to cartilage maintenance… and taking a large capsule of Omega3 daily will do you no harm. The data on fresh blueberries is interesting… the Nogs have an expensive supplement based on it. https://medoxusa.wordpress.com/2011/04/17/all-you-need-to-know-about-pure-anthocyanin/ (Inflammation is the big ageing body problem for everyone) I take Tumeric capsules daily. Getting old is inevitable - being diseased with it isn’t Oh, and dump the booze - that and any added sugars… I come into contact with too many baby-boomers clients who are dependent on it and finished physically in their early 60s.

    Rambo has a nice lead though never under estimate the Mount Etna factor....lol Its a real tough slog up that Messina strait current wise if the wind is on the nose....and then there's the overfalls...and the VTS system...

    Rimas is alive

    Life is brutal… Life isn’t fair… What’s new? (Three strikes and you’re out) Smart thing to do would be for the USCG (unofficially/off page) next time Rimas makes the ‘distress’ call, i.e. can’t be too many >30ft beat-up boat’s drifting around broken in the Pacific…? Launch the Helo to go check it’s actually him, if in range - circle a few times - then fly back to HQ and let nature take its course. (Job done) Maybe much wailing and wringing of hands on his FaceCrook page for a few days by the loyal fans… but at last his 15mins of fame is over. Rimas isn’t the first lackadaisical false hero mariner and sure as shit isn’t going to be the last. As an aside I know a crack Oz sailor that took his self-built >40ft’er back to Brisbane from Panama this summer… I can assure you the usual pattern of trades was not there to rely on… It was defo a tricky challenge for him to get across this year with a limited fuel holding and this is a guy that has pro sailed for Hugo Boss. The NHS healthcare system in the UK will no longer prioritise surgery for heavy smokers or the chronically obese, they should add in too the alcoholics. Think of it as the new normal for continued positive natural selection.

    Middle Sea race

    Tracker.... though 'currently' showing last's years contenders.... http://www.rolexmiddlesearace.com/tracker/#pt I did the Messina Strait mucho times back in Aug/Sept.... should be interesting seeing the fleet negotiate the ferry's whizzing out of the uber busy harbour there.... and tis very shallow if you cut the corner at the top...heading West. They will also see these weird looking fishing boats.... The complete gantry front is missing on this pic in fact!!

    Blue water performance cruiser - do they exist?

    *60/40 mix* This Shipman's been on the market (cough) for sometime.... the carbon build should bring points-n-prizes performance wise... http://uk.boats.com/sailing-boats/2007-shipman-50-5954508/ Still time to get it over this fall/winter via the trade wind route to St. Lucia... then bring it home to the USA... Just remember its on 220v so you'd need to buy EU rated electricals appliances... like a hair-dryer if your other half has long hair....or a Laptop if you're using that for admin/nav back-up. Tis why few folk this side of the pond will buy a USA 110v fitted boat...too much hassle to change out.
