Re: German catamaran kidnapped in Indonesia

True or not, WHERE IS THAT THREAD?

You can't just take content that people wrote into and remove it.

One thing is to close a thread, another is to make arbitrary decisions related to public domain.

So, where is that thread and what happened actually to that boat/crew?

I will appreciate any feedback, also from the Ministry of Truth. ;-)

the crew is fine and there was no kidnapping.
afaik there was some misunderstood calls and some unhappy female crew that could not get off the boat in the indonesias because the captn did only transit and did not have a cruising license for the area, she got off on Christmas Is.
Pelagic requested a rename of the thread as the title was wrong/misleading. the boat was neither a cat nor german and not kidnapped

;-)

I understand now!

An elderly lady who got abducted by a bare Alaskan alien!

I was wondering who pays up to Indonesian government for lost tourism income (approximated at 4 billion in this case) - the nude Malamut or his Frau?

What a nuts story!

Thanks for the lead.
