Thumbs up Re: what a mess: zenamaran

For what it is worth...

Zen, is a friend of mine. He knows about the things Eric had posted about him after he lost his boat (due to a series of mechanical failures).

Zen has posted on another forum to offer encouragement and consolation to Erick and his family on their loss. He is a real "Sailor" and takes no joy in the sufferingings of others.

I think that we have much to learn as a community from men like these.

May we all be kind, and respectful of the dreams others follow, be it to success or to setback.


Blessings and fair winds to all.

I suppose that makes sense. If you want to make snarky comments best to use a throwaway identity.

Re: what a mess: zenamaran

I saw the post, too.
No animosity, and hopes for the best.

Atoll was also the first one to try to mount a rescue for the Rebel Heart, without holding any grudges against Eric's comments.

That is a man with a lot of class!

Re: what a mess: zenamaran

Carol Anne and I had visited the Zenamaran in the harbor before she departed from Alameda after much thought and planning. Fuu is living an adventure overseas now and got to go for a sail in the "Black Current" just recently.

And to be honest now there's a boat (probably) floating around out there unmanned, unlight, with a bad radar signature just waiting to wind up on a beach or get hit. Nevermind the inconvenience to the merchant ship or possible rescue coordination that would have had to pull him out of there.
oh how the wheel of fate hath turneth..........................
