      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.

Accidental Shanghai and the law?

Recommended Posts

On a hypothetical vessel returning from Figawi today, let's say there was, unbeknownst to the skipper, a young lady sleeping in the v berth with his bowman.

When she awakes 50 miles from Nantucket, halfway to Boston, and realizes her possessions are still on the island and she is looking at an epic walk of shame. Say she wanted off the boat NOW, but a detour to somewhere on Buzzards bay would miss us the tide at the canal. I felt a drop off at the bus station in the cape cod canal with bus and ferry fare, along with breakfast and coffee were appropriate. There was other talk if our actions would constitute kidnapping or false imprisonment.

Thoughts?

I'm not sure if "stowaway" applies to a young lady, who's been drinking since the open mimosa bar at 10am, lured aboard with the promise of a Figawi hat and a roll in the sheets on top of some soggy kites.

Shadow: not a real blonde, that's my actual bow chick, who is unfortunately 6 months pregnant and didn't stick around the island after the race for obvious reasons.

Did she step aboard or was she carried?

How large is this figurative "vessel"? Was she unbeknownst to the crew or just the skipper?

 

Were the crew keeping mum and giggling?

 

Are there any gentlemen on board?

 

Are you of the opinion that you missing a current window of convenience is more important than assisting a damsel in distress?

The issue we have created in MASS and elsewhere is at least for now Drunk Sex = RAPE.... there is far from agreement here and when both parties where drunk and cannot remember much... who raped who should always be part of the question....

 

In Comm. v. Blache, the court ruled that jury instructions should clearly explain the following two requirements:

 

that the intoxication rendered the complainant incapable of consent. Jury instructions must make clear that “for the Commonwealth to meet its burden of proof on the complainant’s nonconsent by establishing that she was incapable of consenting, the Commonwealth must show not simply that she lacked sobriety or was intoxicated, but that as a result of the alcohol and drugs she consumed, the complainant’s physical or mental condition was so impaired that she could not consent.”

that the defendant “knew or reasonably should have known that the complainant’s condition rendered her incapable of consenting.” This second element is a new requirement, and the court ruled that “we will not give the new rule retroactive effect, but apply it solely to trials occurring after the issuance of the rescript in this case.”

In this day and age you would be crazy not to;

1) alert the authorities immediately, they may be looking for her.

2) find a new bowman.

3) learn to make a departure checklist, Include head count and names of those on board.include the drunk sleeping ones.

4)apologize profusely to the girl.

5)deliver her to wherever she or the authorities say, immediately.

 

 

Hypothetically of course.

Funny as shit.

 

Explain to her that all actions have consequences, and she is now with the program. Give her a beer and laugh about how fucking funny this shit is, phone whoever needs to know her whereabouts, like mum or boss, catch a bus home.

 

Funny as shit.

Well son. It goes like this. When the bow chick and the mastman love each other very much they like to have a little cuddle and a kiss.

 

It's the kiss that does it.

 

So my boy, if you don't want to get pregnant - no kissing!

Simple fix: Always be drunker than your date, and always breathalyze both on video before you do the deed. If video doesn't turn your girl on, get another girl, or get her drunker!

Free legal advice on SA even from Attorney's is usually worth about squat unless it deals with a damaged or destroyed boat.

 

I would PAY for a sit down with your Attorney and I sure as hell would never post this story here. That said...

 

We have winner for the best story that happened over the weekend!!!!

 

Let us hope for the original poster that his thread has an even shorter ride than his victim.....I mean uh stowaway?....kinda crewmember?....welcome guest!

The appearance of anyone who "slept" through the morning raft breakup and exit out of the harbor along with the first set of sails must have been a beauty?

Does that math add up?

 

I cannot remember anyone sleeping/past out all the way to the start?

Let's see, it's about 33-34 miles to Woods Hole from ACK staying in the main channel, and the Canal is 10-12 miles maybe from Woods. So 50 miles would put you in the Canal or damn close.

 

I would have dropped her off at The Harbor of Refuge IF the story was true. It would take an epic hangover to sleep 6 hours especially if they left Mon with the crappy weather. A Sunday leave would have been a motor boat ride in the afternoon.

 

Too bad MythBusters is over, we may have had a good Myth to bust.

 

Edit: The Canal went East at 11:00am on Mon so a real early start makes more sense...

Just to clarify, we of course did a head count, but guilty "gentleman" was on do not disturb orders having returned to the vessel at 3am for our 6:30 departure. He was sighted in a pile of blankets through the foredeck hatch as being on board.

What kind of boat and crew has a rule such as "was on do not disturb orders'" ? Was this crew the owners wife or girl toy's child or some other freak?

Letting some of the crew sleep isn't that unheard of if it's only a delivery, is it?

Kidnapping and false imprisonment require specific intent where I am, different jurisdictions may vary. Common courtesy kind of requires returning her to where she boarded, even if it sucks for you.

Would you want to disturb a tired, probably hungry bowman in the middle of a semi-mating ritual? It's kinda like the do not feed the birds signs. Sure it seems like a cute thing to do to throw them a chip, right until millions of the buggers are stealing your lunch.

We almost had the same thing happen at Figawi as well...Got up at 5:30am and was getting the boat ready to go. Dont need much help so thought I would let my wife and crew (mostly my kids and one friend) sleep in.

 

Well I was about to cast off lines when I look in the quarter berth and there was a mysterious young lady with one of my crew.

 

The whole way home I kept thinking about what a pain in the ass it would have been to off-load her and way in the back of my mind was the "Shanghai Factor"

 

Good Figawi memories.

I vaguely remember something about sailors on navy ships sleeping with one leg out of their hammock when in port. That way, when a man count was done the officer could run a hand up the leg to see if it was male or female, without having to wake up the sleeper. Could be worth a try in future?

After surfing one cold morning along the Great Ocean Road (Aus) we got some fish and chips for lunch, astounded as to how many seagulls lived there we started throwing the chips onto the quiet side street, the occasional car would slow down for the massive flock.

 

All good until someone with an obvious passionate hate of seagulls came around the corner and floored his V8 at them, hitting about 20 and running over about 6.

 

Lesson learnt, sorry seagulls.

I'd say too bad for her. If you dont want to get wet then don't play near the water.

 

From what I heard, the delivery back monday was more civilized than dealing with hours of cape traffic anyway...you probably did her a favor. We hit the canal about the same time as one of our crew who took the slow ferry to his car.

Your memory needs a better reality filter.

 

1. If someone ran a hand up my leg, I'm pretty sure I'd wake up in a rather abrupt and cranky fashion.

 

2. So the sailor would have his girlfriend hang her leg out of the hammock and not do that gentlemanly chore himself?

 

3. You have hammocks in your forepeak?

 

4. You are actually pondering running your hand up your sleeping bow-person's leg?

 

5. Do you have a death wish?

Hence the expression "Show a leg" perhaps?

In a civilized world the "gentleman" who brought her aboard should escort her back to where ever he procured her from via bus, or what ever. JMHO in this den of iniquity.

Bus? He should personally drive her in his own car, or one of the owners.

You are of course correct, but I doubt that is practiced much now a days.
