Re: Mono in distress

Most taxpayers love the entertainment, drama and hero value of yacht rescues - they should pay for it - they pay millions to watch a game of footy.

Whingers love to have something to whine about so they should pay too.

Boat is tied up at the fuel dock on the next finger over from us.....

No complaints from this Aus taxpayer (especially when you hear of grubby pollies hiring limos to transport there toy poodles around)

Is that GSSM ?
The boat looked familiar in the photo any idea of the name of the cat.
I'm also happy to contribute to these rescues especially the ones involving Govt vessels.
Possibly I am wrong but rescue/ tows performed by VMRs it is expected that the owner contributes unless they are a member of that specific VMR.

Looks like a Colin Ayres designed IMP 33.

Anybody got details on the Southern Ocean rescue, other than the mast fell down, anyone?

Suspect the Aus taxpayer is going to sick of these shananigans real quick.

The Australian taxpayer is paying for the manpower and equipment regardles, and the fuel is more than likely offset against training anyway. View this against the Australian nationals rescued around the world by other nations and your statement is pure BS.

Dear uncle bob if you are an adult try reading what I wrote.
If not get an adult to explain the difference between a suspicion and a statement.

The way you have reacted makes me think you use the rescue services on a regular basis.

Cost of rescue only becomes an issue in Oz if you are a solo round the world racer of the French persuasion....

If forecasts diverge, not so much, and don't rely on anything past the next few days.

But it's not set and forget. Download new forecasts every 12 hours and redo your routing each time. Include a large area so you can see the systems forming 1000km away.

In the case of NZ to AU, include the East Coast from Tasmania to Queensland, as its those lows spinning off the coast that can grow big right in your way once you're half way across.

PredictWind is relatively expensive (relative to downloading raw grins from free sources), especially if you combine it with the cost of an IridiumGo and a data plan, but it together they provide worldwide coverage and multiple forecasting models, plus tools to do weather routing, in a format that means you don't have to be a meteorologist to get actionable weather and routing information.

Each one of us needs to decide for ourselves what level of information we need to manage weather related risk at a level that works for each of us.

Re: Mono in distress

After 8 pages and not much likelihood of knowing why/how the rudder failed, it is, perhaps a good time to recall a couple of Southern Ocean mono rescues 19 years back all courtesy of the Aussie taxpayer via the RAN. ()

Tony Bullimore, the first three minutes is mainly background, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Bullimore


And of course one the frenchmen that do come to grief in this neck of the woods, Thierry Dubois.
