    Chubby Girl - Going to Hawaii

    Point Conception was actually one of the nastier parts of my trip. Threw up around 30 times and had 8ft x 8sec seas, 15knts. Pretty pussy in the scope of things but was quite intense for a lone newbie. Plus, my boat is likely floating after numerous months adrift. Talk about craftsmanship!

    Tips For Being Rescued

    The red dots represent possible crash sites vs the black possible locations in the water. There was little chance it hit yesterday according to the model and I don't believe the model is very accurate anyhow. We have had two seperate CG fights fail to spot it. Nothing spotted by vessel either. The marine sanctuary has also been on the lookout for it and tracking possible crash sites. Nothing so far. The CG has deemed the boat low risk for environmental harm.

    A bad decision on my part. As has been pointed out and admitted to. Lol again. Some is harmless ridicule and other comments are far from that. All for the banter, some of this isn't banter.

    Tips For Being Rescued

    Lol, here is a drift model put together by NOAA (not very accurate apparently as the entire area has been searched). Does that look like Pillar Point? We were about 20 miles away and turning upwind to fight back to the harbor would have been a five hour endeavour and this person didn't seem to have five hours. Lol. Yeah, you're right and a great excuse for a human judging by your post. I get it. You all make perfect decisions, nothing can be made light of, you're opinions are fact and I'm a shit bag. Got it. I started the thread on a fucking light note, big fucking whoop. Read the fucking CG reported conditions. So dark they couldn't see us with NVGs, 15ft seas, 20mph sustained... Let me cut off your motor function and leave you handling a half tonner downwind solo in those conditions. My arm was wrestling a loaded tiller and my mind wrestling how to deal with the situation at hand. I wasn't just sailing you sacks of shit. You fuck twats have so little information, weren't there, don't understand the details which I won't get into (for the individuals privacy) and are saying this shit behind a fucking keyboard. Thanks to the individuals who are a little more understanding and a big fuck you to the rest.

    Tips For Being Rescued

    No, I explained why I took the main down. My post was a bit confusing as I've had hardly any sleep since dealing with this. We had no steerage while dealing with this individual and the CG over radio. I had to man the tiller and navigate the conditions and the only person capable of helping with anything on deck was dealing with the individual below. When the bird was in our vicinity, the main was dropped and the rescue swimmer was dropped from the bird. At this time we were dealing with the individual who wouldn't jump and the lowered main was blown into a mess. This made it nearly impossible for us to attempt continuing on safely as depowering resulted in the boat being tossed about heavily. It really only made sense for both me and the other individual to jump ship and the CG asked. For those who say it was "seasickness" please shut up. I was seasick while dealing with this and many other times and never acted in this manner. This was an extreme anxiety/panic attack. It's 100% my fault that happened but to call it seasickness is a bit obtuse. This person is diagnosed with anxiety disorder. Again, go ahead and have your opinions about whether I'm ok sailing in that (no way in hell I would have called the CG in that alone) but a fact of the matter is that that "passenger" shouldn't have been on board in those conditions. For those that whine about risking CG lives, feel free to take a look at the picture they posted in the press release. They were about as happy as could be to actually be able to do their job and help out. Talk to some coasties sometime and I'm sure you'll find the "never take risks and never call the CG" crowd is almost nonexistent. If the likely outcome is going to require assistance then of course avoid the situation. However, I did not believe that to be the case and I don't think it would be the case with the vast majority of passengers. In terms of legitimate advice, take into account the mental and physical health of everyone on board and make sure the conditions fall within appropriate bounds. Sounds like common sense but we all know that isn't common. Lol at those who say somethings fishy. Do you think I wanted a floating wrecking ball making its way down the coast and to deal with numerous federal and state agencies? For what? To claim my liability insurance? lol. Some of you are funny.

    Tips For Being Rescued

    Yeah the weather actually wasn't the main issue and was super variable, you also are seeing the conditions underneath a chopper hovering just 40ft which is disturbing the water below. Our boat was literally fully engulfed in white water at times with mountains disappearing on the horizon. I was fine with this and even giddy at the conditions. Things went south when a crew member on board had a severe panic attack (coast guard didn't release video of this individual). I was the only person capable of navigating the boat (tons of weather helm and the angle of the wind on the waves made us prone to an accidental gybe while navigating the waves) and the only crew member who could help with anything was dealing with the person down below. After about three hours of this person being in duress and puking all over the boat, we called to have her medevaced. We were planning on staying with the boat until the medevac got there and we had to depower. After we had taken down the main, the chopper blew it into a mess and we were being tossed around uncontrollably. The loss of steeage noted was just toward the end and was due to improper trim which couldn't be fixed while dealing with this person and the rescue swimmer, the individual wouldn't jump. I decided to pull the main down and just come to a halt. By the time this was happening we were in a very bad position to get moving again and decided to leave the boat after the coast guard asked. Had we never had to adjust course and deal with this, we likely would have been fine. The biggest failure on my part is taking someone out in that who had no business being out there under any captain's watch.

    Tips For Being Rescued

    Hey guys, I just wanted to spread some tips on how to make your medevac ride just a little bit smoother. First things first, make sure you your essentials. This could include cell phones (for flicking it up on the heli), wallets (for post rescue Big Macs), and any medicines that may be needed. Secondly, you’ll need to be ready to jump (and your crew members too). Apparently some people get a little hesitant jumping into 500ft of depth in the middle of 15ft seas. You may have to push certain individuals toward the rescue swimmer. Lastly, make sure you shoot enough flares to make it all worth it. It’s pretty fun.
  8. Anecdotal evidence, the best kind! Feel free to actually look at the evidence provided you retards.
  9. Silly me, I knew you wouldn't address it! I didn't need Google except to shove evidence of a pretty well known phenomenon at someone who puts up as many roadblocks to thought as possible
  10. Do you want research on the underlying human behaviours at play? I can provide that if you promise to actually address it unlike your brethren. There's plenty of research on social identify with regards to partisanship. Here is some info that helps understand orange man bad.
  11. We live in a republic for one and many democrats have vowed to change that, making them the real threat to our democratic REPUBLIC. That's really the experiment and it's threatened explicitly without a second thought by liberals. I voted for Hillary as I used to be of the mindset that stability was best for the country. But that's to ignore that our system is corrupt, excessively regulated (how do you think companies gain advantages through government? It's favorable regulations... lack of regulation doesn't tend to lend any particular favors to competitors), and that those who are saying they'll help are likely full of shit and have no way to really help you. Why is it that after decades of democrats pandering for minority votes and promising changes those communities remain largely economically immobile? Oh wait, racist whites. Could it be that shoving money into government and distracting from the real issues that affects these communities actually hurts them? Nope. It's just systemic racism at the hands of the right and government needs more. Ignorant me voted for Hillary and would agree with you. I just don't think one who recognizes the current political paradigm would think Hillary to be the better choice but to each his own. It really exposes the pedestal you put your political ideology on top of when you fail to see how an intelligent person could be of another opinion than yours. That's not a very intelligent thought And we all know those who attempt to attack one's intelligence on such an extreme basis, without ever bringing up a single point, are bigly smart indeed! I suspect this failure to recognize the legitimacy behind the anti-establishment movement fueling both his and Sanders' campaign, will be his ticket to re-election.
  12. That's not possible, only government makes progress happen. Just ask @AJ Oliver!
  13. Hey @AJ Oliver, can you tell me who Galilieo, Newton, the Wrights and Edison were funded by? Or are you going to ignore that.
  14. Uhh, nope. Try again! It's really foolish to call someone ignorant when you conflate such simple things. I said no one, as in no individual within the organization, has an incentive to make things productive (within the organization; I have to include footnotes for your brain to actually understand what I'm saying, lol). That makes for flaws with regard to organizational structure. There are flawed incentive structures within a government (think pay grades, etc.), no one has any responsibility for results, etc. In a private company, someone stands to lose a dollar or make one. And therefore an incentive is created as well as a disincentive, neither exist in the public sector. Greed is neither good nor bad. It's the fucking reality of every human though and you're likely in a position where you feel comfortable thinking otherwise (you're a comfy human who is disillusioned by your lack of real primal circumstance). This is separate than saying government can't provide an environment that allows for it's citizens to create a prosperous and productive private sector. They can do this by helping to provide national security, infrastructure, preserving property rights, and more. There is a reason government control of industry tends to fail. Compare that with you believed I said. You people are unbelievable lol. StRaW mAn
  15. Because everything that someone who opposes you says, is an argument. Right? It's really just shorthand for the observation that liberals (in this case) jump to conclusions without any research or thought with regards to everything Trump. But orange man bad.
