  1. Did you know which sub he commanded and decline to answer ? Or are you now better informed ?
  2. Not really, his total lack of internet presence and your lack of response regarding what vessel he commanded justified a little online investgation. I consider that some good teamwork and a good result.
  3. And here he is in a .pdf history of the sub i found.
  4. Well i live and learn, had no idea there was a Guam Intl Film Festival.
  5. Obsession. Also the line "only thing to do with that kind of money is make a boat go faster" (or something like).
  6. Agree, have been looking all over for this guy and just nothing out there bar a few reports of his activism.
  7. So how are they planning to get the boat east for the great loop ?
  8. Hanging bottles of water on high side maybe ? (Not that they are sailing yet).
  9. Last i checked, regular British mainlanders can't live on Jersey or Guernsey. So my sympathy for these elitist closed islands is not much.
  10. Used to own this one, sold it to a guy in Wisconsin maybe 5 years back. Don't recall that being an issue, but then again we never had a survey done. Let me know if any questions. As i recall, i replaced much of deck hardware including traveler track and car. Also re-bedded stanchions, pulpit, rudder pintles/gudgeons.
  11. Presumably someone also going after the boats that fell off, if still floating ??
  12. No, that green AQS tug / supply vessel was still on the deck yesterday.
  13. Needs some fins at back. Guess i can ask.
  14. Well as it happens i got an alert about this beauty earlier. Talk about running costs being more important than purchase price. Surely a few friends "investing" and a lick of paint here and there and we good to go ??? https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1943/coast-guard-cutter--ex-steel-hull-2871948/
  15. How much of a tacking duel is even possible in these boats given the finite amount of energy coming from your grinders? I read earlier one of the reasons for short races is the physical effort involved. Do they have capacity to go tack after tack for long? (Not that the grinders won't give their all).

  17. Damn, now i need to find my NJ boaters card from 20yrs ago. Might even have a really old CG boat safety card somewhere.
  18. Do the coast guard enforce local laws ??
  19. Greta must have jinxed him.
  20. Yes it is his son.... https://www.sail-world.com/USA/Red-Bull-Youth-Americas-Cup-Next-World-Energy-Team-revealed/-110877?source=google
  21. Well you do also get to say no to Greta
  22. Right so if you french folks while reviewing the rules could just move to a 2 year cycle, that be great
  23. Last week it was Charles Barclay saying pro athletes should all get vacinated, now this. How about everyone just wait quietly for your turn, enough with this jump the line stuff.
  24. Must admit my first thought was "What Would Alex Do"
