    I have a cap like that. He looks better than when he arrived. Could his ss payments be going direct to his mastercard? Anyone able to translate that link, or date it? Could be 5th Feb or 2nd May.

    Don’t be stupid. That would require Rimas to be proactive and capable of tying knots.

    “Knot” a cool pun: worst boat names ever

    I’ve seen a :- Smug Druggler. (A very fast sports boat) Banclay’s Barque. (Probably financed by Barclay’s Bank) Gay Abandon. (all male crew, strangely enough) Goodytwoshoes. (a catamaran) And cleverest of all, d∩ sɯoʇʇoq

    what is it?

    What happens when you hit a log or a seal?

    Well, nothing heard of Rimas for months. Not unusual when he's afloat, but on the beach? No fb updates, no texts, no photos, no nuffin'. He's either very very happy in the arms of some cute lbfmpbr, destitute or dead. We need another hopeless, hapless wannabe.

    You’ve got to acknowledge Rimas has an undoubted talent for posting incomprehensible, misleading shite devoid of easily verifiable facts. Deliberate or deranged? I believe the latter. In the real world, I.e. any ‘civilised’ western society, he would be one of these poor sods with mental health issues let down by the state and left begging for coppers on the street corner. We’ve all seen them. Rimas has this fixation that he is some intrepid explorer and that people are, in the main, helpful in the extreme and generous to a fault. So far he’s been proved right on both counts. I would like Rimas to get another boat and set sail again with his buttery mash and maraschino cherries. Let him sail off into the sunset happy in his delusional attempt to sail around the world. So what if he meets his end out there? It’s got to be better than dying in the gutter somewhere.

    Just goes to show, Rimas needed Mimsy a damn sight more than Mimsy needed Rimas.

    Sold everything to sail the world...boat sunk on day 2

    Twats have made it on to the BBC website. US Couple hope to recover their sunken 'dream' boat.

    I've just scrolled through Rimas' photos on Facebook and am appalled at his physical deterioration in less than four years. Could he be suffering from scurvy? Wouldn't surprise me. Whatever ails him physically (let's ignore his mental state for the time being) I doubt he's got the health, strength or stamina for another drift.

    They were lucky. They had the wrong boat and lack of experience. Now they have no boat, and some experience of how quickly things can go pear-shaped at sea.

    Thanks for that! Essential reading for anyone interested in the Rimas enigma. Some of the links are very good. You must have put a fair bit of time and effort into this. Appreciated.

    Thought of a great book title: Sailing a loan around the world.

    148 words (according to my word processor). Well done, you met the brief.

    I thought he was in his seventies? He looks as though he's well into his seventies!
