Who cares...NK's backside is more than sufficient reasom to see the movie.

Re: Lost while the wife slept

I was under the impression he is still missing...
That being said, there is always the possibility he jumped ship, and left her.
From experience, my first marriage ended thank God, but there was a point where I would have faked my own death just to be rid of it all for even a moments sanity.

Know one knows anything so speculation is what is required, and this is how in some events that new safety items or methods can be discovered and implimented to possible save lives.

I remember an incident years ago at the Grand Canyon in Arizona where a youhg guy fell off the edge while taking a pee and the family was calling for more guardrails to be installed while the "tree-huggers" were saying "hey that wrecks the view". There are always differences of opinion surrounding some tragedies.C arry on you wayward son they sing in Kansas as we are all 'Just dust in the wind". Cheers

I think I've downloaded a virus from these links .
I doubt any Aussie women would have pushed him. If she wanted him gone, and ownership of boat-just divorce.
So many friends lost their houses.
Virus is making misogynist comments.

-Lesson to be learned from movie"dead calm" is be careful picking up hitchhikers as its an unnecassary risk.Keep a few pairs of handcuffs in a cabin drawer and just say your into kink if custom search ever finds.The lesson to be learned from the movie "White Squall" is bad stuff can happen real fast on the relentless sea. Mother nature on a tear usually gets me more nervous than any person as a person usually only has so many predictable moves. I seem to recall the expression was "there aint no new creature i cant handle unless they drop in an alien". Alien vs Predator {the movie} also has a few lessons in it. Cheers

Re: Lost while the wife slept

Do we have a name for the poor guy, or maybe the name of his boat?

Something I have even forgotten over the years. After having my Skipper seconds from going over when a trap line got caught around his gumboot, I once wore one religiously. That was about the hardest I have ever held onto a line. The skipper was within a couple of feet from grabbing a knife, but could not gain the ground. Instead he needed a few inches of slack to get the boot off.

I was watching “Deadliest Catch” the other day and remembered the practice when I noticed the deckhand on the ropes wearing an easily accessible knife around his belt. A good serrated emergency blade on a decent lanyard in the jacket pocket would probably suffice sailing?

With no disrespect whatsoever intended there is a witty Roald Dahl short story about the same; A Dip in the Pool” from “Tales of the Unexpected”.

In the meantime, I hope they have recovered the poor fellow’s body. In passing, I am not even sure if they have recovered the body of the young lady who died on Lake Macquarie a few weeks back? I have been involved in similar situations and it is not nice waiting for some sort of closure.

-Gonna get that waterproof cellphone soon after watching that movie "Body of Lies" and amazed how quickly the govt has the resources to triangulate the position of a cellphone. Is that for real or some hollywood BS produced by Ridley Scott? or is it only in the middle east where that is possible. Real NSA {big brother} can listen in kind of film. One outgoing call and your hooked by the sim card. That could be a godsend or a curse if your trying to stay "off the grid".Interesting info on that netflix movie site. Cheers

I'm sure they found her body a week ago, more or less.

Another lesson to be learned... Hollywood makes a fortune dramatising and scaring the wits out of everyone with scant regard for reality, or the battle we're left with trying to convince non-sailing relatives we'll be ok out there!!!

Re: Lost while the wife slept

Any checked to see if any chain and maybe a anchor is missing? Happened in Boston a few years ago, unfortunately for the person involved a couple of fishermen got a slightly larger catch than they bargained for
