I hope you have at least reported your knowledge to the police. Not to be heartless, but investigations cost money, and if you have information to expedite one, I would hope you offer up your assistance. And as sad as it is to the family, I'm sure they would like to know what really happened. I don't think he would have told them of his plans in advance.

Re: Coast Guard Searches for Ailing Boater off Brevard Coast.

I have a feeling this one will go down as no one ever knowing for sure what happened. The cockpit is very well protected, but he could have tried to get his sails down or something and gone over board. Just sad for the family not ever knowing what happened.

All this reminds me I need to order some life lines.

Re: Coast Guard Searches for Ailing Boater off Brevard Coast.

Now neighbors, just be polite and cooperate and they'll see we have nothing to hide
You want us to get on this train? Okay friends, we have nothing to worry about. Let's get on the train. If we just cooperate,I'm sure they mean us no harm. You want us to go there and take a shower? Well, neighbors, that seems like a reasonable request let's just be polite and cooperate with the nice folks in the jackboots. Some of you people are the reason MY people fled Europe in terror! Hello, land of the free
..constitution. . Bill of RIGHTS? YES, I FULLY EXPECT TO BE CENSORED. But this is what we fought for! !!

Are you drinking? Either this makes no sense at all (and is in response to a 2.5yr old thread), or I'm just too dense to understand it.

Re: Coast Guard Searches for Ailing Boater off Brevard Coast.

Not yet, but I may. This is in regards to the people who are so afraid they would cooperate with anyone stomping on their rights as free citizens in hopes their agrees or something will go easy on them. Who will give up their rights and freedoms for the illusion of safety. I'll buy you a drink and explain why we fought for those freedoms and rights if you can't understand it. When I said " you people ", I was referring to the people who don't care about protecting the weak against the strong. When I mentioned censors, I was talking about people who censor free speech in the interest of order. I really don't care what you think of me. You're free to think whatever you want. THAT'S what we,some of us, fought for. Now, I think I'll have that drink.

Re: Coast Guard Searches for Ailing Boater off Brevard Coast.

I don't know how in hell my post wound up in this bloody thread. I was posting in the thread about Coasties boarding yachts. No wonder you're confused. I'm STILL gonna have that drink.

Re: Coast Guard Searches for Ailing Boater off Brevard Coast.

Absolutely, now to figure out what Godwin's Law is. Is it from a Monty Python movie?
