Got further clarification: "everyone can buy such ships in surplus outlets".

I think that, perhaps, the moderators should not allow political attacks on Russia by Washington,s Trolls.
This is ,after all a boating forum

Absolutely! We don't want the Cruisers Forum to create an international crisis. I'd hate to see the Russians over-react to this thread & start ramming boats willy-nilly.

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

Yes ! Perhaps you could organize a drone strike on the Russian ships captain ,or , how about sending in a N.G.O to destabilize the crew and cause a mutiny with a coloured revolution.
Or , how about , shoot down an airliner and blame it on the tall ship.
The possibilities are endless,as are your pathetic attempts to get Europe to declare war on Russia

Aww man...... see you just took a light hearted entertaining thread and turned it into a political bashing/rant that is going to elicit a strong emotional response and then get the thread closed.

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

I believe it's called irony when the person wanting the moderator to stop political discussion makes the discussion political.

Bustermaw, you wouldn't happen to be at 55 Savushkina Street, would you? If not, lighten up!

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

I was on board the ship that day, got cleared off because they were returning to Russia. "You leave ship now. We are going." Wondered if we should wait around to see it depart but figured it would be an hour or two.

It was crewed by kids, some of them looked 14, none more than 17. We wondered if the captain let a kid take the wheel! Maybe we give the captain too much credit :-P

Is a beautiful ship though, sent us on a journey across the ocean and around the Horn in an epic storm... at least in the mind :-)

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

We took our boat down to Tampa many years ago for a tall ships parade. Several big schooners including the Eagle. We poke fun at the Russians, because we can, but it's actually great that they and several other countries are preserving these amazing ships.

Re: Russian Tall Ship Rams Icelandic Coast Guard

An obvious misuse of the word "rams".
