      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Ed Brennan Missing

17 posts in this topic

Ed was my manager at AG Edwards in Essex CT

He loved sailing. He was keeping his sailboat in Charleston for the winter. He was down there for New Years. He went missing sometime during the night Dec 31st

Ed is a great guy. I hope he is found safe.

If anyone knows anything about where he is call the CPD. See the story on home page

Daughter who lives in Charleston saw him on the 24th and invited him for Christmas dinner, but he had other plans. Yesterday she got a call from a Detective with CPD. His boat and bicycle were not secured when he was supposed to be flying home to CT to meet with a client. We all hope that Ed is found safe somewhere, but it's not sounding good... Not the kind of guy to ever leave his boat unlocked, although he was supposedly having some work done on it. And not the kind of guy to go off on a bender. Very straight, buttoned up and down sort; with many, many dear friends here in CT...

Very nice man. Sailed with him many years ago. Sad to hear of the loss, best wishes to family and friends.

CJ.

I hope he is found.

Ed is a great guy who was living the dream. Here in his home town we are all praying that he did the un-Ed thing and disappeared on his own. Please pass his picture on to anyone you know in the boating community down south.

Sure hope he turns up; his girlfriend is beside herself. Daughter had drinks with him in Charleston just a couple weeks ago. He set up a really nice home office in his Northeast 400, Fresh Breeze, so he could work from the boat this winter rather than the office in frozen CT.

I was in and around City Marina all weekend and didn't hear anything about this. Kinda creepy now that I look back. The current rips through there and there are lots of underwater obstacles in the marina(s)

 

Hoping for the best...

I did see the CG heli flying around. The station is 1/2 mile down river from the marina. Not sure where the heli flies out of but still it was up this weekend.

Daughter got a call from friend who works at the marina. Sounds like Eds brother is there, and possibly planning a memorial service in Charleston?

Thanks Timo, but it's been 8 months, so doubtful, in my mind? If it is Ed, hopefully this will bring some closure for the family. When I met his sister outside the Black Seal Restaurant this spring, she clearly believed that he would turn up somewhere alive... Very sad, Ed was living the dream sailing his Northeast 400 complete with fully functional stock brokers office onboard...

Very sad story.

 

Does anyone know Ed's daughter's name and whether or not she's still in Charleston?

 

I don't believe Ed had any children. I was referring to my daughter in the post above yours.
