Close call, thanks atoll. After checking I discovered I didn't have any interaction with him, just read yours and couldn't remember if I joined the discussion but thankfully didn't.

Now I am really confused, sorry. You start a thread to discuss this, then because someone says that they make a living as a writer you are relieved you didn't talk to him? What specifically in what he wrote is it that has people exercised? As near as I can tell, he quoted from Mrs. Kaufmann's blog. Is that what he did wrong? Is it because of an unsubstantiated accusation that he is a journalist intent on, well, what exactly?

I don't get it.

Re: Rebel Heart's Contribution to the Cruising Community

Delfin,

You may be right, but I have to call them as I see them, and I've found Mr. Weber's posts to all be slanted towards dirt digging. I may be wrong. Time will tell.

Ken, IIRC the Pardey's didn't have an engine at all, and no hot water either. I'm not to sure that this in any way contributed to the issues. Could you explain what you mean by "mind boggling?"

Re: Rebel Heart's Contribution to the Cruising Community

Are we there yet?

Re: Rebel Heart's Contribution to the Cruising Community

The other thing that's causing this great " sensitivity " is that irrespective of what side your on. This incident brings up serious questions for the blue water cruising community that is made up of partners and children. This is a small group. , questions perhaps no one really wants to be in the public eye.


In fact it brings up questions maybe all of us would prefer not to deal with. Questions like what is " prepared" can partners really sail together , can you 2 hand with small kids. Etc etc
Perhaps we'd all prefer to sweep it under the carpet


Whether that's right or wrong , who can say

Dave

The thread was originally about Rebel Heart's contribution to the growth of cruising over the last 30 years.

there was some pretty vile stuff there posted by turdnibblers,whipped into a frenzy by the media wind up merchants.

i would hate to see a new "inside" story quoted directly from cruisers forum.

another thing mr webber should be warned about by the mods is NOT including links to his spurious inflamatory quotes from the web

Re: Rebel Heart's Contribution to the Cruising Community

I think an analysis of RH and the assumptions built into ocean cruising may well be a very useful contribution to the long distance cruising community.

Re: Rebel Heart's contribution to the cruising community

I think this post is very accurate. Didn't see anything else that comes closer to what I deduct from the info we got. But I would like more info before taking this as the final analysis because much can change when some details turn out a little different.

Some examples (and there are many):
1. Don't leave with sick kids on medication
2. Have some prior offshore experience
3. Know how you and your spouse will handle stressful situations
4. Have some prior foul weather experience... jeez Force 5... really?
5. Know how to repair one's equipment and have the stuff onboard to do so when the time comes.
6. Bring jerry cans of extra fuel and water.
7. Take sea sick medication before you get sick, not.... 4 days later.
8. Purchase a genuine aluminum whisker pole... not scavenged bamboo.
9. Don't have a set timetable in order to meet unrealistic personal goals.

I can go on and on... but you get the idea. Now that they are indeed back safe and sound via the help of the US Navy and National Guard, I think some actual critique is in order... as they themselves... the crew of Rebel Heart, were not shy of doing to others. Maybe an honest assessment will prevent this nightmare from happening again... enough of the group hug stuff, this voyage could have had a much more tragic ending.

Don't believe me? Read the Rebel Heart blogs and past CF postings for yourself.

I don't get it.
as far as i know it is a forum rule when quoting to include a link,also to put it in inverted commas.

apart from that if you check his profile page you will see a pattern of spurious quotes meant to inflame,provoke argument,contravening the be nice rule.
