I appreciate them. I am thankful they chose to share so much of their journey (lumps and all) with complete strangers via their webpage.

I think "idiots" could not be more misplaced.

I wish them well and will be sad to see their adventure come to an end.

who cares, they're having fun. That's what's so great about the sea, one of the last few places you can go without having to weave through walls of red tape(until you decide to head back near land anyway).

Am I the only person in the world who has not bothered to read their blog?

I'm sure they did not write it for acclaim or criticism - so why not just let the subject drop?

Controversial and irresponsible, that is why the comments are still flowing.

Not sure why they wrote the blog either, I sure as hell would sail for the enjoyment, not for chasing down internet-cafes on every stop to publish my diary.

At any rate, yawnnn....Let them sail, but I wish they would keep it to themselfs.

Thumbs down What a joke!!!!

What a joke, why did the administrator remove my poll? It had better choices than this one and was completely different. It did not break any of the forum rules. What is this? A dictatorship??

If people did not want to vote on it, it would have become lost in the thousands of past threads that no longer get commented on.
What harm was that?

Aha..I thought there was 2 polls for a while.

Then something disappeared...Too many Bitburgers in my brain and my liver perhaps?

Nah, admin killed one of them polls and left us confused.

For most "hits" on this here site, keep the Bum topics alive and open: We all have comments and opinions on it.

If the Bum's wants publicity and the spot-light, they are doing the right thing.
If they want respect and admiration they may be on the wrong course.

I just feel sorry for whoever buys that boat next. From what I could discern it is relying heavily on chopped strand mat for structural integrity now. It has one new engine already and seems to always be in need of engine work-a fairly good indicator of poor maintenance.
One day I'm sure we'll here someone here defending their purchase of it saying "well it got them around the world didn't it?!)
Idiots seems abit strong since they do seem to have good computer and communications skills. But clever people still do stupid things all the time. These folks have that down pat.

i actually posted this poll as a way of getting away from the comments and just have a way of metaphorically putting your hand up in favour or against
as for seafox well all i can say is that the natural intelligence and superiority of a kiwi based in australia shone through :-)

Ummm, seafox is a Kiwi in Kiwi land.
So what poll has dissapeared?? Seems strange that one has been deleted without all the "team" knowing about it. we would normally discuss deleting a thread or similar to get a concensus as to what to do with it. And usually when something is deleted from you folks, it is actually sent to an area that we as the "team" can continue to view it and decide what to do with it. I have not heard any of the team discuss this nor have I seen the post moved. So I will look into it. Maybe I was away or asleep or day dreaming at the time we decided something.
Anyways, can someone explain what it was that seems to be gone and where it was originaly placed.

Personly however, I don't know why we are bothering to place polls on these two. It has caused no end of bickering here.

Hey Sean,
you get up earlier over there, that's all.
When a Kiwi leaves to go to Australia the IQ of both NZ and Austraila increase so it can't be what you said.

Arrrr, OK. Nope something happend to it outside of the Mod/admin team. I remember seeing your post this morning (I am online every morning from 7.AM) and thought, "I don't get that". Now I do if it went with a poll. There was nothing other than your words in the post from early this morning.
