RKoch is not mistaken. In a previous post, Fuji Wild admitted he was a hoax. We seem to have many readers with comprehension issues.

Moving on, how do we end this? The thread has just been a circle jerk since R has gone dark.

So it's been 3 weeks with no signs. I suspect he's still out there without the ability to communicate at all.

And, let's not forget, many a sailor has abandoned a floating boat. If all we might find around Fiji is a body, well it's likely not to be found ever.

If alive, he's still got the Delorme and had plenty of sun to charge it. There is the mystery of the last message that Tom quoted. It didn't show up until a day after Rimas sent it. IDK what that signifies.

Yeah, but I've had emails/texts arrive from the ether. My thought is if he's still with the boat, the Delorme is down. If not on the boat, he's bound to be dead by now.

I agree, if he's not aboard the boat, he's dead. If he's still aboard a floating boat, no telling. He may have run out of batteries for his GPS units too. If so, hes fucked. Even if he did manage an escape from danger in Fiji, he'll have the same problem making a landfall anywhere in the South Pacific.  My guess remains that his utter lack of sailing ability and a boat damaged to some degree caused his demise in Fiji. Between all those reefs and islands is some pretty deep water...he's down there somewhere. Best clue is a search for flotsam.

This time you got it all wrong. I said I heard some kaivalagi talking about this idiot Rimas the sailorman, that was when he was approaching those dangerous reefs in Fiji. That was on the 28th. when I googled SA  and signed up.

And Rimas has been completely invisible on the Fijian media sofar, apart from those Twitter air search pictures.

American vernacular ? Had to google that word, but we are all rapping like fucking american rappers, like Chris Brown - Fuck Em All

all these niggers ain't no me, / Cause I'm the man of the hour, ..

And "some" knowledge of Fijian culture ? I told you all about my family, and all the exam subjects, so I live there, and do my research on Rimas ! 

And I said I was not a Texan, just to trick you into thinking I was American, I am not ! :lol:

Me don't lie, but I already told you I had a split personality, schizo you know, and my alter ego is not  a schoolboy like me, but a man of high standing in the sailing world...;) And he is not a sock either cause he never posted in SA before, I swear by God !

So just for you, these r me:

 I remebered something like negative waves early in the morning in this thread, and just googled it, and that classic movie line came up.   Not too difficult for a Fijian schoolboy, me thinks. you should see what we google, and I am not talking about rugby! The times are changing my dear SOF...

And btw. I think captpiratedog and most others figured me out a long time ago, but you still seem fixated on the boy. And once again, the boy is real, I showed you his picture (also real), and explained I am a schyzo captain jezus who likes blowjobs, as Varan spotted correctly.

I thought it was pretty obvious right from my first post, and admitted it many times, again only 12 hrs ago to RKoch, and Varan got it too.

We are all playing certain characters here, and I am trying too weave some Fijian culture in an otherwise sad story.  Cheers !

I still hold hopes of BJ running into Rimas and delivering him to you as buttery ashes

There was still hope in his last post. He hadn't hit anything yet, not even a commercial ship, which is more than can be said for Reid Stowe or the US Navy.

Over on FB, Jim Furnish hasn't given up hope either.

I have. He's gone. RIP, Rimas.

Someone, somewhere, someday, will find a message from Rimas in a maraschino cherry bottle.

Doubt it though. Poor sod's sunk, gone without trace.

Is it possible his tracker floated as far as Texas reef while his boat sank days prior?

Doubt it as someone was typing messages into the Delorme when he was about 6 miles off the Texas reef.  Best guess is he hit the NW corner of the Texas reef.

Well good god, give it up.  This old man is fish food. 

I saw a FB post from that tool Jim Furnish the other morning and almost puked my bacon and eggs.  Another FB Kling-on speculated that Rimas tossed his electronics overboard and continued to drift toward Shangrala.  Yay, hooray, peace, love, and harmony, and all that other unrealistic bullshit.

Puke.  And puke again.

WTF is with people who cheer on any 'ol fool who's attempting to do what they wish that they were doing instead of doing what they're doing right now????????  I guess that's how Patreon got started, RIGHT?

I'm sorry guys, Ream-Us did NOT toss his Garmin overboard and sail off into the sunset, despite what all those Facebook douchbags hope and pray for.  This muthafukka' was all about the notoriety for his "world record around the Horn world record old man eating taters and living on a teaspoon of water per day" bullshit.  He's not just gonna cut ties with the real world and sail off into the sunset like so many of us hope to do once we finally tell our bosses to fuck the fuck off.  The MINUTE this asshole hit dirt, you can bet he would be searching for WiFi (and a Frapichino).  It was always about the GLORY for him, from the time he left in that other piece of shit ill equipped sailboat back in 2013.  Nothing has changed.....  except that he finally found a submerged "patch of coral" that payed him his dues.

Keep speculating, but I called it way back before he quit transmitting.  Rimas was dead drifting straight for Texas Reef with no engine, no sails, no steerage, and no one who gave a squirt of piss about coming out in a boat and towing his dumb disillusioned ass into his next "WORLD RECORD" port of call.  

It's an ugly world out there and life's a bitch.  It's not all daisies and tulips, and no one is gonna be here to wipe your ass but YOU.  Sack up and deal with it.

Or as Chopper Reid says, "Harden the fuck up.".

(Notice that I made all of my above Rimas references in the PAST-tense?  That's because that's what they are.  Time to move on to a new thread, bitches.)

I read the Secret Life of James Cook this week, (book 1 of a 3 book set on his life), and was amazed to find that before he set out to transit venus/discover the great southern land, he prepped for his journey by talking to another ships master who documented his own earlier approach to FIJI from the north east.  He laboured on about the difficulty avoiding the reef that laid across the path to Fiji, and how a keen eyed lookout was required both day and night. He recommended that the best approach was on a clear night, when the phospheresence of turbulent water on the reef lit it up like a beacon. He warned against trying to approach it during the daytime.  The width of the reef, combined with its low visibility meant that you didnt see it until it was too late to be able to sail around its ends.   Even with a young eagle eyed observer in the crows nest, he was struggling to clear it in time.  With Rimas's inability to do anything other than wallow on broad reach downwind, and his absence of proper lookout, and poor preparation, he was toast.

Jon Olsen How long has it been since any contact with Rimas?

Jim Furnish 7/31/17

Nancy Pittard Too long ago!

Scott Duncan He is lost at sea. It's hard for me to imagine any possible way he could be alive right now.

Jim Furnish “Why are you afraid, you who have little faith?”

Scott Duncan Im not afraid, Im just realistic. BTW Rimas is not Jesus.

Jim Furnish No, he certainly isnt. And it isnt about fear, its about faith.

Jon Olsen Scott Duncan 
I think you're right he would've posted by now if he was still alive 

too bad he's got the same boat I have San Juan 24 

so there's no government agency involved in any of this?

Scott Duncan Jim Furnish who said anything about fear?

Jim Furnish try to hijack someone else's thread. Let those with hope, hope..it really has nothing to do with you.

Scott Duncan Jon Olsen I dont think Fiji is like Hawaii or San Francisco where the coast guard is there to help all the time. Fiji is quite undeveloped compared to the USA. There was some SAR activity in Fiji a couple of weeks ago, but we don't even know who it was for,. It could have been for a totally different vessel. Neither Mimsy or Rimas were mentioned at all on their website during the SAR operations. Really there is no one looking for him (that we know of) and there are no plans for anyone to look for him. If he doesn't show up anywhere, likely his passing will go unnoticed other than here on FB.

Haydee Ullfig If he is no longer in this world, I think he left it the way he wanted to leave it.....sailing at sea.

Poodle Head Mikey‎ to Rimas Meleshyus

August 18 at 6:31pm · 

What happened? Are you dead or are these guys just exaggerating ?

Comments

Capitan Michalli It is bad luck to speculate any kind of negative outcome when people go missing at sea. People have been known to survive many days or even many months when gone missing at sea. You must always have hope for the individual. Last known position was within the Fiji Islands region. There are many reefs, Islands both large and small as well as remote areas in addition to local boats , pleasure boats and commercial boats. For someone to just vanish without any trace what so ever is highly unlikely.... unless withing the Bermuda Triangle where various conspiracy theories are at play... just stay positive and hope for the best..

Elleda Rhiannon Wilson I feel better. Thanks.

Scott Duncan It is bad luck to speculate, but odds are not in his favor.

Guys, this is BC. I'm calling in some markers and asking my former colleagues here at NSA to reposition the sat trained on the NORKS, and to look for and find Rimas. I've also called in the Glomar Explorer with its team of "scientists" to investigate Texas Reef with divers/submersibles.

This is black off-the-books activity, and it's not cheap. I've set up a GOFUNDME site to fund the search. All contributions are welcome!

Re Facebook: No prizes for guessing that any enabler will only be talking about Rimas's survival.

Yes there's a tiny chance he survived... but there's going to be endless woo woo about how he DID survive.  Rimas will be hanging out with Elvis soon.

There's a number of them who encourage the wider FB fan club.

The enablers with some sailing experience had the wit to understand that the encouragement of Rimas was foolhardy; no worse, a cruelty. Rimas was never capable or fit for the undertaking they encouraged him in.

If Rimas is dead, they'll be doing some soul searching.

tricky pig is right – those who knew better but nevertheless encouraged him were doing so because they wanted the horrific result, not unlike the producers of some futuristic science-fiction society where gladiator battles are televised for the viewing pleasure of the mass audience and judged by the number of people watching.

On the other hand I continue to think this whole thing is a hoax, but even if it is a hoax it does not excuse the intentional maleficence towards an unknowing and, by all accounts incompetent, individual by those who are not behind the hoax.

I know that's tongue in cheek; it certainly isn't my take.

It's just that we play this incident out on the web like no one has to take responsibility for what they do and say. Modern living seems to encourage reality tv show thinking, certainly not critical thinking.

You cannot tell me that any experienced sailor on SA would stand on the dock and hand Rimas a free boat and a Delorme and then tell him to head offshore; like handing a drunk the keys to his car and telling him to drive home.

All of the SA'ers who politely tried to help him on FB got criticized by the like of Jim Furnish and other 'clueless FB friends', then eventually got unfriended by rimas.

I'm a little discouraged today by all this.  Jean has been MIA and I assumed that he was out sailing, cruising somewhere.  Today I find out from a friend that Jean isn't out sailing, but out eclipse watching and yet no mention of concern for Rimas or efforts to find him.  Really unbelievable, not a mention.

The classic enabler type doesn't "believe" in attorneys, which is fine, seeing as they can't afford one anyway.

Much more likely that they are in denial. Denial that they ever rooted the retard on. Denial that what they did believe in turned out to be, basically, false. Their behavior is parallel to Rimas's behavior when all facts point to failure: turn off the electronics and disappear. They can't be criticized if they're not present.

I think there are still four possibilities since it's only been three weeks.

1 Rimas is dead, He hit the reef and sank.

2 Rimas the pinball wizard dodged major damage and drifted all the way through the Fiji area, but lost his Delorme over the side. He will soon be the mummified ghost sailor unless he finds a sandy beach to plant the keel on.

3 Rimas is in intensive care as a John Doe after being pulled from where ever.

4 Rimas is in Detention for illegal entry and being delusional. He may or may not have access to a phone. Maybe they ship him to Moscow.

4a Rimas was in detention, but is being flown to LAX with no phone. He decided to walk to Jean's house and will make Jean's wife really mad in a month or two when she finds him living on the couch..

For me the possibilities are:

1. He is dead on Texas reef.

or

2. Given the winds, current, and his lack of forward mobility, on his way to Japan.  With his skills and survival equipment, he will be DOA at Tokyo.

Can't imagine what it would be like to be a dillusional sailor, off to set world records only to face the grim reality of fate. Was he terrified, or simply waiting for a tow to arrive? I just cannot imagine Rimas being scared. More like drifting below to await the new dawn, where ever that may be. Hope he is in a happy place.

I have always believed Rimas knew his mind was going and wished to disappear out into the ocean never return. Then he f.....ed up and lived, so he did it again and again until he was successful. That is what I believe and I believe certain other people that egged him on knew this as well but when it happened they became scared and went into hiding

If no word by next July, how about we all get together for a Rimas Remberence at the end of July? I'll bring the taters.

We could save on airfare and hotel by just checking in via Delorme.

    I'm in  ....    I call dressing up as Katherine Hepburn....   can we do this in Coos Bay Oregon so one of us doesnt get lost.

It's OK, Kingnosail, it's ok, I admitted I am a hoax, no worries, but who is Katherine Hepburn? Does she rap or hiphop?

also not to be an arse...  but having been on this thread since before I was born, the Remas thing is a bit of a joke u know...

And Coos Bay is also fine for me, only 4776 miles from here, I can drift that far in a year. And anywhere except that fucking awful olympic marina in Kingston will do. Shall we meet in that nice park next to the little concrete dock, just around the top of the town? I moor my Superyacht on the outside, and there is just enough room for your Dragon on the inside. U do know your way out of Lake Ontario do you? then South, around the Horn, and then North, easy! The entrance to Coos Bay is quite a long sail, but very scenic, you will get lost...

Sock puppet of the year award goes to Fiji Vuli for perseverance in absurdity above and beyond the call of Duty Free. Living testament to the toilet bowl of life... You can only circle the rim for so long. Eventually the vortex of a remus passing will leave sock puppet fence sitters under turd... 

Beutifully said Turkey, only Riemas could have said this better, if only...  and I will be most honoured to receive that award on Remembrance Day. Only, please can I have a turd that's pointed at both ends?

In Serbian, the capital M is often inadvertently substituted for an F, which would make Rimas's boat Mimsy become Flimsy but we already knew that.

In Serbian Azaragi dialect, "Rimas" means the " blunt stone used to Ream the mAsses" , but hey, we already knew that too. 

In Croatian the capital T is often advertently substituted for a P...  :P
