    You are right and I think we should stop. It's a very confronting issue and it probably should never been posted. For the life of me I can't think why 2 people in the public eye would choose this method of announcing their mating intentions but it's a strange world hey?

    the return of lia

    I'd feel a bit weird following Scooter on FB to get info relating to this thread. That's icky. If he has time for FB posts why can't he update his own threads? Do I need to follow you on FB as well for updates?
  4. The real anomaly here is that the organising club of the most prodigious yacht race in the Southern hemisphere the ROLEX Sydney to Hobart has been completely schtum, nothing, not a word. Instead of taking control of the situation they have left it to the 100 club, the media and social forums to run with the issue. They have learned nothing since their last disaster.
  5. Maybe as the system powered down it reverted to safety items only. Kicked the AIS back into gear.

    Maybe they didn't even finish the race, just dropped the hook, so to speak.

    @MR.CLEAN thanks very much for outing him as an Antipodean, mate, just what we need right now. We are still waiting for an Ambassador for Christs sake.

    Hard Tenders

    Christ Ole, I'm having trouble keepin up with your fleet lately! Inflatables are nice but nothing beats a nice, hard, dinghy let's face it. My first serious boat came with a Swanson Snug dinghy which I grew to love. A FG nester that really worked. Each half was easily managed and it could be joined/unjoined while afloat. Unsinkable, rowed/motored and sailed very well it's hard to understand why they petered out. The previous owner had put chocks on the cabin top to accept the bow section inverted and the stern section naturally sat on top. https://boats-from-au.com/not-specified/swanson-snug-dinghy-45189

    FTFY First off, Lia was not the OP. Next off it's none of your business or mine. While it was foolishly published in a public forum that does not give said public permission to forensically psychoanalyze her, her life or women in general. It's just a public forum not a Colosseum.

    What I find interesting is that on a sailing forum we have a whole bunch of predominantly white, middle age guys, including me discussing Lia, her body, her mental health, her intentions, her use of media, blah, blah, blah. No amount of "she posted it so it's ok" covers this, for her or anyone else!. We all identified early on that this was complicated and personal but we couldn't help ourselves, we got involved, some more than others. What if Lia sent that message to Scot personally and he was the one who decided to publish? Maybe it's all some part of a complicated public mating ritual? I have no fucking idea but I really wish this thread would self destruct in 3 minutes. It's none of our bidness so if he won't pull it, jus stop pokin the bears.
  17. Wow these Northern coconuts really go for it don't they !! First up they get a good barney thread going on in here. Not content with that they spill out into other social media until the whole thing just goes ballistic! Threads get nuked, curmudgeons scatter like mice, you might be thinking this might be a moment of sanity and be the end of it but no.... This thread starts mostly as a bit of a giggle, what heppened to you Muppets? You know, throw a few petals LB's way thet kinda thing. Nek thing you know one by one thar all bek here too...... I think you might be in danger Jek. There's at least 3 petals, a scholarly sweet pea, a turkey and one of the petals lawyer mates, he's very good by the way. I wouldn't touch this with a barge pole bro.
  18. It was a beer can race, not like it's the RSHYR or something.........oops.
  19. I figured any sensible conversation in this thread died along with the original.
