Kinda mean thing to say, but maybe true.

Though his latest boat was abandoned, Rimas is alive and well. I think he's still waiting to be flown back to the states.

If you've got a few (a lot) of spare hours. You can follow this thread;

http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/ind...-san-juan-24/&

^^^^If you think I'm not nice, you'll love these clowns. They've written him off for dead several times and are finally in awe of the distance he's traveled and his seamanship skills.

You can probably find him on face book too.

Re: Sea Nymph Spotted Adrift

I know Rimas personally, talked to him about his adventure.
He ditched 2 San Juans and Mimsy was not an unseaworthy vessel.
However, Rimas is not a DIY kind of person, if he was he'd be done with this dream already.
His biggest flaw, I believe.
Cause he's got Kahoneys for sure. Many more sea miles than most sailors.
Adrift, for months is not my kind of sailing.
I bet you see him, eventually.
I believe he's on Guam, American territory, not wealthy though.
I believe his donors are few do to his style.
Thanks for the follow up. I only said Mean cause I like to support boaters, even those with bad planning.
Cheers,
SV Cloud Duster

No problems at all I guess...

Would be nice if she circumnavigates as the first vessel
without crew and steering to show them how it works ...
OMG! this is awesome. The first unmanned sailboat to circumnavigate on its own. brilliant!

Re: Sea Nymph Spotted Adrift

Anyone else notice the boom came off?

It's dangling off the portside partially submerged. I also noticed the friggin spreaders look JUST fine after all this time. That was my issue and I kept bugging her to answer me about it too when I was taking to Jen on the SA thread. I subjected myself to those 1.5+hrs of the interview that I think got removed too. So after listening to it I kept asking why she didn't jury rig the spreader (her reasoning on not sailing, or sailing full canvas). It's been a couple of months now and I have tried to delete it from my tiny brain to make space for somewhat more important info, haaa, but I think she blamed that on the Rigger using the wrong pin? She was threatening to sue him (she didn't have insurance) blah blah, poor me crap.

Since 2012 I have been diligently cleaning up plastic pollution, in the water and shoreside and talk about it whenever I can to grow awareness. It's situations like the sea nymph that pose a catch 22, scuttle it and add to this issue or put the safety of others/vessels first since it's a navigational hazard...

Re: Sea Nymph Spotted Adrift

Well there is plenty of power to run pumps, Solar array on it,
It cant be damaged too much if its still afloat,
Its still pretty high out of the water,
Submersible pumps will still be ok even after this long under the water,
If it was in a bad way, unseaworthy, It would have sunk already,
Or be a lot lower in the water,
Some thing is not quite right here,

Maate, something has not been quite right from the beginning.

Re: Sea Nymph Spotted Adrift

I guess the issues were fixed momentarily when the dingbats left the boat. It was not the vessels fault, nor the dogs, it was the seamanship of the crew.
