We definitely need a "Sarc" icon!

He was on a cat and perceived wisdom amongst some on this forum is that we cat "sailors" motor 100% of the time.

Monte (who owns a cat' and so knows this isn't the case) was making a wry reference to that.
And there was I thinking..
"WOW...!! an honest Cat owner .. at last..!!"

It was a government vessel carrying out official duties.
Actually, Paul, that is not a government boat nor a government helo. In Australia, these duties are commonly carried out by Volunteer groups. Obviously, the pilots of the helo are licensed professionals, but are not gov employees. The operators of the "Coast Guard" rescue vessel are amateurs and volunteers. Their training and competence vary widely; some are very very good, some are pretty hopeless. We once encountered some of the latter type in that very place... Lake Macquarie. Nearly cost us our rig...

Re: Stand on Vessel?

Fwiw, when I am trying to be funny, I often use the followed by the to indicate the attempt at humor, but have also used the like Boatie.

I agree we need something, because I failed to catch the humor, just thought monte hadn't read CC's post carefully. Sorry, monte.

Re: Stand on Vessel?

CG on the Lake Michigan coast does this & more regularly including extremely crappy & cold weather. Usually miles off shore. I think they practice SAR with men in survival suits randomly dropped miles out. We also see them in survival suits or not much jumping into the channel to Muskegon Lake by the CG station picture 5 here: Muskegon, MI Meteorological Data & WebCam Great pictures here & local weather.


I like the attitude of the OP - get out of the way & worry about stand-on later. This way, the discussion occurs at the bar. Much rather buy beer than paint.
