    Seriously how long have you been boating? Looking for a dead body at this point is honestly not a good use of assets and there time, as noted he wont be floating. As for the ax you clearly have to grin with the CPD and others in and around the play pen, you are aware they aren't simply checking out chicks in bikinis rather keeping tabs on the situation as things can go sideways at a very fast clip over there. Now imagine the story was something along the lines of CPD was out looking for a body and a preventable incident happened in there normal AOR? Yes I am sorry I am a little bitter about this entire event, but until you have pulled bodies from the water and/or have to inform loved ones please just keep your comments to yourself about how and when searches are called off. To a loved one anytime its called off is to soon but the people in power making those calls are doing so using data and facts.

    Seriously have you ever done a SINGLE SAR CASE? I have five years of duty doing just this exact thing. You're comments are truly clueless, and when presented with the facts you continue to double down. Once of the hardest calls to make is when to call off the search. This entire ordeal is horrible, but honestly short of the weather you couldn't have hoped for a better scenario, lots of boats around, near shore, plenty of assets to assist already on scene. If there was any chance of him being found the odds where in his favor, however even the crew have stated they saw him slip under the water and not come back up. Its just a horrible scene and my thoughts go out to his family and friends losing someone in this manor sucks. I am certain in the days and weeks to come, there will be more information about this event and the events leading up to it. Hopefully people will learn from it and make the proper changes moving forward like was done with the Wing-Nut incident a few years back.

    almost a boat yard disaster

    Have you been around many boat fires, let alone boat yard fires. Boats being petroleum tend to want to burn when there is heat near them and they just keep burning.... The best thing you can do in the case of any boat fire is remove boats near the boat on fire.

    US Watercraft receivership ? (Alerion etc)

    first rate businessman... well if he was a good businessman he wouldn't have gotten in the marine industry. Also was barely Careful still in the mix with C&C? if so how many boat companies is this his name has been attached to that have done less than great...

    Those are the rates for the season, which is about 4-5 months long for most people. Half of my customers don't even show up to there boat until Memorial day and are done with it at the latest Labor Day.... I hate to think how much per weekend of boat use its costing!

    "most expensive slip in the city"...only $3500?!?!?! thats crazy cheap!!! Sign me up for two of them at that price. I said most expensive MARINA That is for a 24' slip. The boat is a San Juan 24. A berth for a 35' costs just shy of 8 grand a year, a 45' is 12 grand. That's $18 - $22 per foot. Anyone know of any more expensive places to park a boat? Well here in New England IF they have docks they aren't cheap, my yard starts at $225.00 a foot and goes up to $260.00 a foot with a 30' minimum charge,and no I am not missing the decimal point! This is a nice yard but its not like your paying for a pool or anything, never mind the separate fee for Electric!

    Newspaper in the layup? No. Down in the bilge? Yes! I swear after the built the hulls in some of the trawlers they just swept everything in the keel/bilge area and then just poured resin over the whole mess. Screws, wire bits, paper, food... I have seen it all!

    That one defied all my attempts at admiration, but I think it needs a good mocking. How about, needs a rudder? Or two? And a place to put it/them? And a bath. Or just a backhoe, chainsaw, and dumpster. I see boats like this and I wonder how the hell they made it across the pond? Someone certainly didn't pay to ship it over did they? Someone couldn't of carried this "line" of boats in hopes that it was the next big thing???
  13. Well since they let everyone go I don't think there is anyone working on it so its rusting away and all the wiring is probably turning a nice shade of green
