    VOR Man Overboard

    Let us assume that the range of the AIS signal in a real seaway is 3 NM or 18,228.36 feet Let us assume the boat speed was 20 knots - that would be equal to 33.76 feet per second. Therefore, the boat would be out of range of the AIS signal in only 539.94 seconds or 9.0 minutes. This is scary short period of time to square away the boat after a crash jibe and do a 180. Damn.

    Snaggy, your prayers were answered. A 1985 Cheoy Lee Pedrick 36'! They just schooled Rimas, again! That other link is not working, so try this: http://tbo.com/news/Couple-whose-dream-boat-sank-gets-a-bigger-better-boat-for-a-buck_165898742

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

    So, Finistere overturns 11NM out to sea and is out of the water in a couple of days. Now these guys run aground this past weekend at John’s Pass and they are out of the water in a couple of days. BTW, a Gulfstar Sailmaster draws 4’10”. From the site that will not be mentioned. https://cruisersnet.net/lnm-shoaling-johns-pass-near-giww-statute-mile-123/comment-page-1/ Torie Cannon - February 26, 2018 - 6:30 pm Friends of ours were coming Johns Pass this weekend and went hard aground causing serious damage to their 39’ Gulfstar Sailmaster. They were taking on water and beached the boat just inside the pass to prevent her from totally sinking. Then hailed SeaTow or Boat US to assist. They did manage to get hauled this weekend but not before a lot of water was in the boat. The towing company quickly showed up with pumps and manage to get them afloat at towed them to a near by yard for haul out. When I heard about the other boat going aground I thought old boat and newbies are a bad combination. But our friends have been in and out of the pass enough to know it. I think last time was about 6 months ago. Something is not marked in that pass. Wonder if they hit Lagniappe? It has been nearly a month now. Is the couple’s boat trash out of the water yet?

    Salvage and disposal at $225/foot X 28 feet = $6,300 So they net $9,946 in order to continue their lifestyle. They just schooled Rimas.

    Received another message from the Tampa Bay Times. "Yeah I was able to get on wayback machine myself and find them earlier and show them to gfm. They decided to change their statement after that and now say they’re “looking into it.” The coast guard tells me the wreck is now marked (I think with a buoy or something) and that they’ve been broadcasting warnings about it. The sheriff’s office says the couple is being cooperative and still has some days to take care of it. We’ll see if they do. I don’t really think it’s a story unless they abandon it and taxpayers foot the salvage bill. But the second that happens (if it does), I’ll make a huge deal out of it. Thanks again for your help."

    For me it is getting the couple to clean up their mess and get their sunken boat out of the water. That has not happened yet. It may be polluting the water and may be a hazard to navigation. The GFM nonsense is secondary to me.

    Last night I sent an e-mail to the two journalists at the Tampa Bay Times alerting them that Tanner and Nikki have been altering the purpose of their GFM account and may not be working to get the boat out of the water. This morning I received the following: I assure you we're already looking into this and keeping an eye on it. The Coast Guard is diving today to see what's up with the wreckage, and says the couple is being cooperative and has not abandoned the wreck, and that a salvage is moving forward this week. Have you seen any screen shots of the gofundme page out there that show those edits? Thanks for reading, Because they asked about screen shots, I e-mailed them back with three and told them how to do it themselves using the Way Back link. 1. February 11 when they said, “This gofundme account is solely to get the boat out of the water!” 2. February 14 when they said, “The $10k is to get the boat out of the water! It is first and most important thing we need to do. Anything extra is to get a new boat and continue our adventure. We arent giving up on our dream” 3. February 21 when they said, “The first thing we is a new boat and continue our adventure. We arent giving up on our dream“ Late this afternoon I received the following response: “Wild stuff. This is what Gofundme just told me. I guess they say those screen shots are fake?” "The description on this GoFundMe has not changed since the campaign started on February 8, 2018. This campaign does not violate our terms of service, and ultimately it is up to the GoFundMe community to decide which campaigns to donate to. If donors would like to request a refund, they may do so here:" So, according to GFM, nothing to see here - please move along. Apparently, we are producing fake screen shots. Tells you something about GFM

    Never knew about "way back machine" until reading this thread. So wanted to see how it works and used the link provided in post #745 by SBH20. A calendar came up and I clicked on the date of FEB 11 at 22:24:30 and then took a screen shot of their GFM posting. Notice that is somewhat different from the other screen shots as they had a single sentence in bold for the purpose of the GFM plea. This gofundme account is solely to get the boat out of the water! My guess is that as soon as they saw the funds rolling in, because of that newspaper story, they expanded what they would do with the extra loot and they were not about to give anything back.

    Hmmm... 2,800# of lead X $0.95 per pound = $2,660

    Motorcycle Threads

    My ride is a bone-stock, original paint 1983 Honda 1100F. This was a one-year only bike for Honda and mine has just under 8,000 miles. My brother builds and customizes vintage Honda motorcycles. He is down to three bikes now – all have significant upgrades. His stable includes a 1983 Honda 1100F (no photo), a 1982 Honda CBX (inline 6) and a 1978 Honda Gold Wing – supercharged.

    Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Besides the wipers, also notice that the Rawson 30 on CL has color-coded lines for the traveler - red for port and green for starboard. That has to count for something.

If you call, then ask for Tom and he will let you know what works for your needs. hope this helps, the call and his advice is free.
