    I never comment on another man's wife, but Dylan, you are a lucky man. It is even more satisfying knowing that you know how lucky you are. Goodon ya' both.

    What do you do when you are buying a used boat?

    Based on the questions you've asked, my best advice would be to spend the next full year reading everything you can about boats and sailing. That alone will save you from wasting thousands of dollars.

    Greta Rides Again?

    How little I care about your opinion is too small an amount to be measured. You are such an internet cliche.

    Greta Rides Again?

    I have a 24 year old son with mid to severe autism. I do live it everyday. He's a much better man than you.

    Greta Rides Again?

    You've been told the word is offensive. What you do with that information is your choice, and it lets all know what kind of a person you are.

    Greta Rides Again?

    No. It is appalling to use the word. Period. You are making fun of someone by comparing them to someone with a neurological disorder -- using a word that has been considered offensive for at least 20 years.

    Greta Rides Again?

    Anyone who REALLY knew anything about Autism Spectrum Disorders would never use the word "retard" even in jest. It is an appalling word.

    Can't hang that one on her. The skipper of that vessel has sole responsibility for the safety of that vessel. If the child is in danger, his father put him there.

    boating dumbfuckery

    The guy at the end of this video with the funny shirt is an idiot. Joe Charter with lines in the water has the "right of way" over a vessel under sail? The problem is that other douchenozzles are getting their "expert advice" from this douchnozzle.

    Oh, I see what you did there.

    Deadwood - Front page

    DOn't think the boat name is Deadwood. Look at the part of the letters that are visible. The first letter is not a small or capital "D." Could it be "goodwood?"

    No. They are not on the intercoastal.

    "Pilot in Command" is a specific, aviation term. When you are a student pilot, you customarily sit in the left seat, but the instructor is the PIC. He/She is responsible for the safe operation of the aircraft at all times -- not the person in a specific seat. This happens thousands of times each day all over the country/world, and nobody dies. It doesn't matter who is in which seat. In a Cessna 177, it is as easy to fly from the left as it is from the right seat. When two pilots fly in a small plane like a C177, they are always specific and clear bout who is the pilot in command. Even more than a ship at sea, the pilot in command of an airplane is the only person on the planet who has the final word -legally - on the operation of that aircraft. Even the President of the United States cannot overrule the pilot of Air Force 1. The PIC is in charge -- no exceptions -- and he/she makes all decisions as to the safe operation of their aircraft. Apart from the over-indulgent and/or publicity whore parent, the sole responsibility for that accident is squarely on the shoulders of the instructor. This jackass planning a VFR flight into deteriorating, IFR conditions shows a fundamental lack of knowledge, care, and professionalism on the part of the instructor. I'm sure he ws thinking "aaah, let's just go up and see how it is." Taking two passengers into deteriorating, VFR conditions unnecessarily in pursuit of some minor 15 minutes of very limited fame is inexcusable. They were taking off at over 6,000 feet -- a whole different kind of flying than at sea level on the coasts. Just the forecast of increasing winds and (are you fucking kidding me?) thunderstorms in the area should have kept them on the ground -- any student pilot with 10 hours flying time could make that decision. Flying near thunderclouds is no joke. Doing so when you are flying a C177 in the mountains and your take-off altitude is over 6,000 feet is suicide -- and murder.
