I'm skeptical.  I could change  my current city and hometown to Hilo on FaceBook  at will.  Presently my hometown on FaceBook is 4,000 miles from my actual city/hometown to befuddle prowling creditors.  Rimas's FaceBook hometown listing rarely equates to where he's presently  reposing when ashore.  He's claimed living in Port Townsend when actually in 'Frisco, and if my failing memory serves, even once claimed his  hometown was a Pacific Isle,  which he never touched; can't remember the name. 

Until I see hard evidence he's elsewhere he's still in 'Nam.

I am skeptical too. But he did post last week that he was going to fly to Hawaii someday next month. March? April? He was living with someone on the island, but the location was a ways from Hilo. Some of his older posts and pics were from the Kona side.

Looks like a typical drive to wurk in the Dry Shitties, Washington.  Noobs have to learn not to try to dodge them.  Just plow straight ahead.  They're mostly air.  Although I did get slammed by one of those in the upper left once, riding my bicycle.  Threw me in the ditch and left a zillion little cat scratches.  Although it was not on fire - just a zephyr zooming across the road.

We have those fuckers on our porch. Love that flat petrified look when they crawl between the door and the jam, then you shut the door. Petrified for years. Actually, I love those little fuckers. Between them and the geese it all of a sudden becomes alive after the silence winter. Sad in a way, because I love winter.

When I was in Antigua each night there would be a chorus of them starting at the top of the hill and the sound kind of rolled down the hillside before hitting full volume a few minutes later.  Found one of them inside the unit I was staying in.  I thought it was a small rock at first until I got close enough to take a closer look and it hopped away.  Couldn't believe how such a tiny thing could make so much noise.

There are always two or three of them in my house.  Can't keep em out.  I've learned to warn guests, since there is almost always one in their shower.  I just tell them his name is "Herman" so they won't freak out.  They also leave behind surprisingly big turds for such little guys.  That's gotta hurt.  

When we grow tomatoes in the greenhouse, that draws whiteflies.  Which draws the frogs in.  Some years, there are more frogs than tomatoes on the vines.  When I walked through the greenhouse and back to the office, likely as not there would be a frog on me somewhere.  Sitting on my shoulder, or on my hat.  Sometimes it's hard to walk without stepping on one.

He was rescued by Vietnamese fishermen investigating his apparently derelict boat.    They say he was weak and half blind, unable to safely piss overboard and required assistance.    The boat drifted on to China under the helm of a chicken.    Rimas was showered in temporary Vietnamese glory, but his fate is currently unknown.   Did the Vietnamese, Putin or ICE got him?

You make him sound pathetic and that's wrong.

While there are many aspects to Rimas that are less than admirable, I said waaaaay upthread that he wins the sailing game. He beats us all. He spends almost no money, does almost no work, and enjoys the heck out of being out there. And being out there. And being out there some more.

A book I read about Einstein said he had sailing skills and practices not very different from Rimas'. He liked to drift around and think. Noticing that he could be going a bit faster/straighter/whatever and taking action to make sure that happened wasn't on the agenda at all.

Rimas is no Einstein and I don't approve of his methods but I have to admit defeat in the "sailing for fun" game. I do way more work, spend way more money, and have thousands fewer sailing miles to show for it. Drifting miles. Whatever. He still wins.

Are you sure about those facts?  Are you sure it wasn't a 37 foot sailboat, involving North Coronado Island in Mexico.

Aegean was a 37-foot Hunter 376.

If you extend their track, it goes directly to the point off Salsipuedes which is the shortest route into Ensenada. aegean_plot.jpg.7679d1efb3fc14729959f12a42b8a9c4.jpg

I was there, 3 miles west of the north end of North Coronado Island  racing on another boat when they crashed.  We were in a classic sails only fleet, and the engines allowed fleets were catching us due to very light winds.  The weather was clear , no moon , starry skies with a moderate chop from the afternoon's winds.

It's obvious the AEGEAN SEA  hit the light winds, fired up their diesel, punched in the finish line coords on autopilot and  slammed in to the headland cliffs  a few hours later at full speed.  Obviously no lookout (they had a full dodger, truly a 3kn shitbox).  The owner/driver had won a previous N/E  race(s?) in the engine class and was touted as a Raytheon(?) engineer expert sailor in the press.  There was conjecture at the finish line party that some freighter had run them over but later their SPOT track was published and much later the actual submerged wreck was identified by divers on Coronado Island.  Um, 'scuze me but if a 500 vertical cliff with seas breaking on it is directly in front of you possibly shut off the autopilot and steer around it?

The aftermath was distasteful, their heirs sued the shit out of the OA, NOSA, NOSA officers personally, SPOT, and anybody they thought had dough. NOSA backed off from 50 years of pre-race boat inspections for all competitors before your ticket got punched; now the skipper assumes all risk.  Not sure but they may have banned motoring at night in the  engine class.   Don't care, haven't done the race in 6 years after 18 years of participation because the clown boats under power make it a non race.  The latest iteration is a conglomeration of  shorter courses for the boats that don't have the balls to do the entire 125 miles under sail.

But concerning the AEGEAN SEA, much hand wringing and oh so sad unfortunate event.  Not!  The owner and crew were so reliant on GPS,  autopilot, etc.  they didn't look out the window every 15 minutes  for a MKII eyeball assessment of their course.  Sorry, Darwin even works when coastal racing.

Right, most any sailor except Rimas, which makes him pathetic. The lawn dart, escaping the reefs of Fiji, drifting from Hawaii to California, etc., he has to be the luckiest pathetic sailor in history.

Must have been a different incident.

The wreck of the Aegean during the night of the 65th Ensenada race was in 2012. No survivors and no real evidence of what transpired on board. But given the circumstances, it seems highly likely that something like the following transpired:

  1. The tracker shows that up to [an exact time] their track looked erratic, typical of very light air sailing, when suddenly the track data points became evenly spaced and lined up extending directly to Salsipuedes.
  2. Their chart plotter was most probably zoomed out to plot a straight-line course to Salsipuedes. At that level of zoom, it was assumed the small Coronado Islands didn't show up on the screen.
  3. All aboard dropped their guard while motoring on autopilot and possibly only 1 person or none was on deck when Aegean plowed at hull-speed into the North Coronado Island.

Those are all great examples but the most amazing bits of luck to me were the two different deadly tropical weather systems that caught him in open water and...

weakened and gave him a gentle push in his intended direction.

That sentence NEVER ends that way.

1) I agree. Once VN is done milking the PR angle of rescuing a sailor, their tolerance for a deadbeat will evaporate. The expired passport is only a minor problem... They'll dump him on the steps of the US Embassy and say "Your problem now".

2) I don't think his FB fanclub contributes much money to him. And apparently Jean and Shannon have had enough. 

3) AFAIK he gets about $300+/mo in Social Security. That will cover his food and occasional Starbucks. Won't cover rent. US will possibly deduct airfare to return to US from his SS checks. 

4) I have no idea where he's at now. If he was deported, he's likely on the streets in Hawaii. May no longer have Internet or phone. Possibly trying to look up old contacts there to freeload off of.

I guess it depends which island they dump him on. I would guess they would send him to Honolulu, but I suspect most of the people he knows are in Hilo. I bet either island is pretty easy to be homeless and sleep on, but not so easy to get cheap food. Sorry, I meant free food.

Well, the part about buying him a cup of coffee and he'll tell you his story is similar. Except Rimas won't settle for a dime cup, he demands Starbucks. And 'August West' wraps up his story in 9 minutes whereas Rimas will prattle on forever.  It's a great song...one of GD's best...Rimas is not worthy of the honor.
