EPIRB ACTIVATION FOR S/V ANARCHY

Recommended Posts

I just had a text from a friend in the race who is off of Malibu. Said they heard the USCG responding to the call, but can't hear any other transmission.

Copy that Peter, thanks. I didn't and don't see them on marinetraffic, so I don't think they have an AIS onboard.

False alarm - thank god - just got this via text - False alarm. EPIRB hot wet. Wastes a lot of taxpayers money. Helicopter and Baywatch turned around.

Hit the floating remnants of some huge plywood catamaran, in a bizarre twist of fate.

When you find out, please post details. Especially make and mounting location.

 

Thanks

No worries the Ed is rock solid and more than good for the tab. I am sure the crew will do a quick estimate on the outlay by the various services on a Friday night round up to a solid even number and get the checks delivered to all concerned straight away. He is known for that... right?

Don't forget the Ed did a spot of rescuing / standing by recently that could have ended in loss of life. So, whilst a false activation is unfortunate shit happens out there.

Looks like Scot Took a Bullet

 

Oop's I meant Dodged the Bullet = 2nd in Class by "ready" 4 seconds--> http://jerryv.x10host.com/SBtoKH/2016/index.html

 

UNAFISHALY = ANARCHY 4th Over-All ;)

 

And in Differet & Over-All NEWS ......An OLD (ain't they all) HOBIE-33 corrected out 1 hour quicker :o

I see the Hobie listed as 3rd in fleet, 48 sec out of first.

Why the rating of 39? Super-turbocharged or something?

Turbocharged may be an understatement. https://www.facebook.com/CaptainSluggo/photos_stream

That Hobie rebuild looks great! Potential SCOTW material too! Gotta love a girl in a grinder suit.

I've told her a hundred times not to use a screwdriver as a chisel or a chisel as a screwdriver!

"Captain Sluggo"

 

^^^^ Just a bunch ah rich kids :)

 

kidding !!! ^_^

 

nice to see someone with a boat they believe in putting in the time and effort to make it That much better

 

HOBIE created a pretty Solid platform de-tuned to Bullet Proof

 

Would have been nice to see HOBIE make a Non-Production Full-Race model to the potential he believed it had

 

Those were the Daz - Now they build thin-wall Tubs full of Clearance IKEA cabinets that fall apart and turtle just as they came from the boatshow :o
