Sea Shepherds New Toys...

Recommended Posts

Sea Shepherds new toys have been hanging out in Annapolis for a few months after they bought them from the Coasties, today they fueled up at the yacht basin and did a short sea-trial. Some spy camera photos... (iPhone to bino), they've named this one Farley Mowat, didn't catch the name on the one that fueled this morning.

A final gift to Sea Shepherd from Sam Simon?

I think it is a mistake to take those Cutters and keep them painted white. Those are clearly US Coast Guard Cutters. The US has kept a hands off policy in regards to Sea Shepard. and Green Peace. As long as they stayed protesters there was a minimal response from various US agencies. The Green Peace Diver in Alaska was over the line and they paid the price. This is no different than buying Police cruisers and just removing the decals.

 

 

Both of those boats need to disapear over the horizon and away from North America as soon as possible.

No guns on SS deck in pics.

 

I've been thinking the whalers should employ a defensive escort vessel

 

, for when SS does stuff like throw lines in front of whaler attempting to foul screws, or other actions which endanger others,

 

Defensive escort could move in ,

, and let SS bridge crew get "binoculars on foredeck" ,

 

, and then let SS know that the '88

"Respectfully Suggests that SS Keep Clear"

I'm thinking things would be a bit safer @ sea

One of these days the Japanese are going to get tired of being harassed and rammed by this group, and the last thing and the Sea Shepherds will see is this.

Yeah they do, but their behaviour suggests they're not too far away from holing and sinking a ship in the Antarctic which would do more environmental damage than they're trying to prevent IMO

has nothing to do with being pro whaling. has everything to do with the way they go about things. why on earth would you intentionally ram a steel ship with a fiberglass boat? putting their lives at risk unnecessarily is just pure stupidity.

In the video, you can see the prop wash increase on the Gil just before collision. they were not stationary when hit

No, the captain of the Gil said they started the engines and were attempting to reverse just before the impact.

No, the captain of the Gil said they started the engines and were attempting to reverse just before the impact.
They were doing 5kts just to keep steerage, out of gas to do more. When the whaler caught up to them practically dead in the water the captain made a beeline straight on a collision course.

The prop wash was full reverse...too late.

 

There is a full unedited clip from the Andy Gil's perspective, Paul Watson may be a vain, megalomaniac dick but the captain of the whaler was 100% responsible for that collision & sinking.

 

Edit-- You can clearly see the whaler veer sharply when he realizes they are dead in the water.

U.N. court orders Japan to halt whale hunt

http://www.cnn.com/2014/03/31/world/asia/japan-whale-hunt/index.html

Why is anyone trying to pin that collision on Sea Shepard? The Ady Gil was motionless, and the whaler broke all COLREGs while destroying another vessel on the open ocean. They were dousing them with water cannons while emitting a piercing whistle. They turned to intercept the motionless boat.

 

On another note... Pamela Anderson has now joined their board of Sea Shepard advisors. WTF? TV lifeguard turned endanger-the-life-of-your-child advocate and now whales? Does this one-time celebrity knows how to reinvent herself or what?!

Admiral Watson is adding to the fleet it seems:

Admiral Watson reminds me of General Field Marshal Idi Amin Dada (Excellency President for Life, King of Scotland, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Sea) awarding himself titles and medals including:

 

* Conqueror of the British Empire (CBE)

* Victorious Cross

* Order of the Source of the Nile

 

Given more time, "Admiral" Watson can award himself even more titles.

first things first, admiral, captain or whatever the fuck he call himself paul watson is an absolute self aggrandizing piece of shit. second of all, I'm not in favor of whaling and the whole "it's research" line is total bullshit. but there's a right and wrong way to do things, how sea shepherd does business is the wrong way. and trying to use the nav rules to justify collisions is such bullshit it isn't even funny.

The "right" way to do things was tried by Greenpeace. Didn't work. Governments refuse to enforce the treaties and UN rulings.

 

So the choices are the "wrong" (Sea Shepard) way or allowing Japan to kill a bunch of whales, some endangered species, for "research".

Say what you will about Paul Watson, but he has always been upfront about his conviction that "the ends justify the means"

 

Which is why he left Greenpeace to form Sea Shephard, as he felt that Greenpeace's efforts were not having any tangible results in terms of protecting other species of marine life that we share the oceans with (seals, and dolphins at that time - whales now) from the rapacious industries that wantonly prey on them for for profit

 

As a crewmate on the original Greenpeace vessel "Fri" which sailed to Mururoa in 1972 to protest the French nuclear testing there, I can say with a certain degree of experience, that "Diplomatic" discourse has a limited shelf life in the face of big money and big govt.

 

I've never met Paul Watson, nor do I care what kind of public persona or private personality he may have.

 

He's acting on principles in which he believes - in an arena where few have the conviction to do so

My friend from Palau welcomes dickheads like Sea Shepherd, he has seen his family's livelihood eroded by factory ships from Japan and China who don't seem to care much for territorial boundaries, that take more out of those waters in a week than his whole family can take out in a year.

 

But yeah, a bunch a guys who make their livings from things that have nothing to do with sustainable ocean harvesting hate Sea Shepherd ... water off a duck's back.

If so, then that's a badge of honor. Greenpeace has reduced itself to a neutered non-profit that has about as much ability to affect real change as a Juniper Street Hobo.

The Sea Shepherds... the only people in the world capable of making illegal Japanese whalers seem like sympathetic figures.

 

Fucking douchebags. Their reality show is a hate watch in my house. We DVR it and spend each episode rooting for their Zodiacs to go under the screws. What they do would be legally classed as terrorism if legislatures and the public generally understood what it means to tamper with somebody else's boat underway. It's all political fun and games until somebody loses a nipple.

They're just the shock troops working to build up momentum and political and economic capital by taking on the Japanese dickheads. Their movement isn't going to rest until commercial and sport fishing is banned, our marinas closed and we're pushed off the water.

Yes, he's got a point. We have a eco society here which is the Georgia Strait Alliance. They have toned down rhetoric from what it was 10 years ago. Very, very anti boating and we should all be in kayaks etc only if we were on the water. They cleaned up their act and make it legit. But we (the boating community) are watching them carefully.

All it takes a few nut bars on their board then look out.

 

Sometimes a little humor works with the Great Unwashed vs. The Nut Bars. We used to have a marine railway nearly in the center of town for the scow racers, and there was a move afoot to expand the park in which it was located and to upgrade the railway. The local alderwoman wasn't all that fond of the "yacht club" (a club, BTW, that owned the rails, the motor that hauled the boats, and paid the electric bill - but owned nothing more) and showed up one Sunday after the races to watch the boats being brought ashore. She spotted the bilge water draining from the undone transom plugs.

 

She yelled "Oh my god, they're draining their holding tanks on the shore!"

 

One of the guys looked up and said, equally loudly, "Hell, lady, we just whiz over the side."

 

She never lived it down.

 

The marine railway eventually did move, to another park. The space they would have used was converted to a basketball court, which was probably a better use for a near-center city facility.

They're just the shock troops working to build up momentum and political and economic capital by taking on the Japanese dickheads. Their movement isn't going to rest until commercial and sport fishing is banned, our marinas closed and we're pushed off the water.

 

 

 

You sound nearly as EXTREME as Sea Shepard!! LOL! :D

 

Yes, he's got a point. We have a eco society here which is the Georgia Strait Alliance. They have toned down rhetoric from what it was 10 years ago. Very, very anti boating and we should all be in kayaks etc only if we were on the water. They cleaned up their act and make it legit. But we (the boating community) are watching them carefully. All it takes a few nut bars on their board then look out.

 

and yet we had a charity regatta to support them last summer.

Sometimes a little humor works with the Great Unwashed vs. The Nut Bars. We used to have a marine railway nearly in the center of town for the scow racers, and there was a move afoot to expand the park in which it was located and to upgrade the railway. The local alderwoman wasn't all that fond of the "yacht club" (a club, BTW, that owned the rails, the motor that hauled the boats, and paid the electric bill - but owned nothing more) and showed up one Sunday after the races to watch the boats being brought ashore. She spotted the bilge water draining from the undone transom plugs.

 

She yelled "Oh my god, they're draining their holding tanks on the shore!"

 

One of the guys looked up and said, equally loudly, "Hell, lady, we just whiz over the side."

 

She never lived it down.

 

The marine railway eventually did move, to another park. The space they would have used was converted to a basketball court, which was probably a better use for a near-center city facility.

 

Berkeley Breathed use to do an editorial in a magazine like SEA or something had very powerboat oriented mag and in it was about putting diapers on Blue whales in Hawaii because of the pollution etc. He went on & on in Berkeley Breathed fashion it was hilarious. Some picked up the mag in my office for quick glance when waiting for me and he said: They are putting diapers on whales now? He looked at me and he was serious - too funny. I wish I can find a copy. It's like Gary Mull's 4 page article in Bay & Delta Yachtsman that Alcatraz is a floating island. Basically Alcatraz was more out Gate from it's present location. Gary had done such a believable job that I heard this for years later the floating island that is Alcatraz. Gary was a card and with his creds he could pull it off.

I hear ya amro. The things that make you go........hmmmmm.....

 

There propaganda showed up at my own club littered about the bar. They are sort of partnered a bit with a lot of the clubs and now BOATING BC. I haven't said anything about it as it sounds like I'm some sort of a hater. Been down the road before and I don't want to go down that road again - it's not worth it. I guess we'll see.

nimbys are going to win.. even when it's 1000 miles away from their backyard.

 

the college i am working in at the moment is anti just about everything. no meat, no oil, no idling, no noise, no hydro power, no pipelines, no wind farms, no salmon farming, no throwing everything into one trash can...

 

makes me wonder how they expect to meet the demands of a growing and resource hungry population. will the electrical fairy spring magic power dust on their roofs and provide free and perpetual power?

Paul's a bit of a dick ( & has no commercial skippers tickets ) but sea shepard do a great job in the Australian Antartic Terrortorial waters in the abscense of our government.

Yeah they do, but their behaviour suggests they're not too far away from holing and sinking a ship in the Antarctic which would do more environmental damage than they're trying to prevent IMO

You mean a 2nd ship?

In the video, you can see the prop wash increase on the Gil just before collision. they were not stationary when hit

No, the captain of the Gil said they started the engines and were attempting to reverse just before the impact.

They were doing 5kts just to keep steerage, out of gas to do more. When the whaler caught up to them practically dead in the water the captain made a beeline straight on a collision course.

The prop wash was full reverse...too late.

There is a full unedited clip from the Andy Gil's perspective, Paul Watson may be a vain, megalomaniac dick but the captain of the whaler was 100% responsible for that collision & sinking.

Edit-- You can clearly see the whaler veer sharply when he realizes they are dead in the water.

Something on the BBC too and I ran across this as well: http://seashepherdlies.com/

 

Apparently there's no love for Watson there for certain.

Note: I haven't figured out how to post video in this forum, so you'll have to click the links.

 

Given the behaviour of the Sea Shepherds, it's amazing to see the restraint of the Japanese.

The Sea Shepherds have also attempted to drum up resentments from the Australian people for the sinking in WWII of the Australian Hospital Ship (AHS) Centaur.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AHS_Centaur

Sea Shepherd rams Japanese whaling ship

Sea Shepherd: Shooting flares at the whalers

Whale Wars: Fouling the propeller of a Japanese ship

This is how the Sea Shepherds react when the Japanese retaliate using the same tactics as the Sea Shepherds use:

Sea Shepherd: "Activists" (my quotes) claim 'night attack' by Japanese whalers

Live by the sword, die by the sword. They set the rules, seems like they'll have to deal with. At least, until there's a serious set of injured and or dead.

My friend from Palau welcomes dickheads like Sea Shepherd, he has seen his family's livelihood eroded by factory ships from Japan and China who don't seem to care much for territorial boundaries, that take more out of those waters in a week than his whole family can take out in a year.

 

But yeah, a bunch a guys who make their livings from things that have nothing to do with sustainable ocean harvesting hate Sea Shepherd ... water off a duck's back.

Which is similar to some of the commercial and sport fishing in my area? Not painting them all with a broad brush, but there isn't a season that goes by inwhich the Feds don't bust both commercial and many sport boats for large illegal catches, hoping for the big pay off instead of fines...

Because that's the clip that you'll never see on a network news broadcast.

 

The bazooka looking thing is a potato cannon on steroids, usually used to fire canisters of butyric acid. Think putrid butter, only condensed. And water insoluble so you can't simply hose the decks off.

 

Admiral Paul is a dick of the first magnitude, but they are the only ones in the world confronting the wholesale rape & pillage of the worlds oceans head on. You my hate them, and their silly reality show, but that's exactly their strategy. In the wired Facebook world of everybody & their brother claiming to bring "awareness" to the cause du jour...they actually do it.

 

Sea Shephard may be a herd of nautically clueless cunts, but they shine a Klieg light on the bullshit that is being done to the worlds oceans. That's their aim, and they do it better than most.

Fuck the Japanese. Inscrutable bastards.

You our goeng theire soone? Remember to yelle yhis on the Ginza strip

 

PUI Snags. My friend came over, I made dinner and we drank a 1.5 liter bottle of Bordeaux and then a 1.5 liter bottle of Tempranillo. Nice wine but things got a little fuzzy toward the end of the evening. But those Japanese folks are inscrutable, they are very difficult to get to know on anything but a superficial level. Ginza, here I come!

If you propose funding a Sink the Seas Shepard Ships expedition and give all shareholders a cut of the TV rights from the reality TV show shot on board, then count me in.

 

I know of an "Admiral" who will probably be available for the show, Jeremy Clarkson. I'd watch that :D

Threads about hatred of ocean conservation like SS, and threads about guys like HotRod and Reid help me to remember that many, many Sailing Anarchists are genuinely wonderful people who unfortunately kick into Ninth-Grade-Bitchy-Teenager-Mode when they see anyone who sails in any kind of genuinely Anarchic way.

Hatred of Sea Shepard and ocean conservation are two wildly seperate things. Only ignorance lumps the two together.

-I don't buy into Al Gore's global warming, but support environmental regulation on most everything.

-I don't support the nut jobs who pound spikes into trees, hoping to seriously hurt loggers, yet support responsible management of the logging industry.

-I don't support the nuts who break into labs and set a pile of hopelessly confused animals free, yet detest animal testing.

-I don't support the criminal actions of Paul Watson, but I support ending whaling.

 

Those are just a few examples off the top of my head. I have no problem wanting to be nice to our little planet, but Watson's a menace.

Or, to put it simply, Watson may be an ass, but there is a lot of support for the effort to stop Japanese whaling for "scientific purposes". Given that there isn't anyone else trying to stop them, since the IWC is powerless, we either put up with his antics, start our own Sea Shepherd Society, or look the other way and pretend the problem will go away. Choose wisely.

+1 - well put. People like Watson do more harm for ocean conservation with their agressive\violent rhetoric and antics. At the end of the day it's all about them and want to be the anti-hero. Nothing about saving the world.

 

I was at the first rally in Vancouver's Gastown for the "Don't make a wave" group that became Greenpeace. I still hold those values but Greenpeace lost there way a long time ago.

 

Watson & his band hoodlums? Are you serious?

Folks like you and I may support all kinds of thing in theory, but that doesn't mean we're getting our hands dirty actually building public trails, picking up garbage by the side of the highway, or getting into bar fights with industrial polluters.

 

Watson's a menace? Yeah, that's the point I reckon. They want to be a menace, they want to be a danger to themselves. Look at Greenpeace to see what a Sea Shepherd would be without their anarchic recklessness ... basically a big non-profit depository of rainbow-pink feelings to make yuppies in Royal Oaks feel better about ordering the party platter of sashimi for their garden party.
