Re: Missing Vessel - Blue Dog

You know, kantafig, I just sat a death vigil for my sister in law, and I am feeling pretty darn sad about that.

I think your post is pretty inadequate. I expect we all feel for both of them. Your obvious disrespect for a 72 yr. old male is pretty distasteful to this observer.

Why could you not have written something along the lines of, "Poor guys. Hope they turn up safe and sound at their destination."

Fwiw, I really DO hope they get there okay both the dog animal person and the human animal person.

Ann

Condolences for your loss Ann. And Jim of course. I hope we hear some good news about man & dog aboard this wayward vessel.

Lets just hope it's something silly and not something serious. Too much growth on the bottom slowing him down or some such, or maybe found a pretty place to anchor in for a few nights.

A simple tracking thing like SPOT would save his family a lot of worries.

Sounds like the character that endears him to his family makes it unlikely they could convince him to carry one. If anyone is going to be OK it sounds like it would be him.

Ann, firstly, condolences to you and family
and secondly, your comments are spot on, I would add that those truly reveal the character of the poster.

Hoping he was talking about the blue dog (name of the vessel)?

A Coast Guard spokesman said that according to the so-called float plan, or sailing itinerary, Farrell was scheduled to arrive in the Virgin Islands no later than Tuesday and that as of Wednesday he is being considered overdue. The Coast Guard previously has search a vast expanse of 310,767 square miles of open ocean using a C-130 Hercules out of Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Deputy Public Affairs officer David Schuhlein, spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard District 1 in Boston, said a C-130 crew was again searching "surrounding waters and approaches to Jost Van Dyke" on Wednesday, but said so far there have been no sightings of Farrell or his sloop.

He sounds like the kind of character who wants to be FREE! but doesn't mind worrying his family and thus causing the USCG to waste a lot of time and money (and putting their men in harm's way)

Not sure about the harms way part, but lots of tax dollars will be spent, if he’s in a bad way, well that’s what there for

Re: Missing Vessel - Blue Dog

It's a fine line between waste and needed real life training. Also, the character did file a plan so it's not that flawed. To be fair I didn't read the article.

Why should I. just because here is policy "be nice" or you are out. I am writing what I think and I think that is completely O.K. to write what I think as long as I do not personally offend, calling names or swearing on any member of this forum.

Is this forum something from Stalin archives and everyone must think like "great leader".

....and to add to my previous post, if I was there and had to choose between man or dog who I am going to save, I would go for dog without slightest doubt.

Best regards
