The Steering Wheel

Rebel had days to decide what to grab, he shurly thought it deeply. It probably took 30 seconds to take it off and did it long before the ship arrived. I think it's a very nice memento of his voyage.

Boatguy your views are disturbing and not inline with most of our thoughts on rebel. We wish him well and are truly bummed that his voyage didn't work out. You seem to be trolling for someone to argue with.

Point taken, your a meanie, we really get it.

A meanie, and a girl in an inflatable armchair, lol.

The wheel, the ships bell or the name board would all be appropriate mementos if there was time.

Re: The Steering Wheel

I get "it". Take the old wheel to put on the new boat for a new start and a nod to the last boat.

Many Navy ships that use the names of other ships have items that were on those ships. On the USS Truxtun (the last one) we had a picture of the other vessels of the same name.

Re: The Steering Wheel

I was disappointed he took only the wheel. I would have tried for the rudder, masts, keel, Yanmar, hull and the head. Just kidding people...........but seriously this was a retarded question to begin with.

The OP needs to keep blowing hot air so his inflatable armchair won't sink.

Re: The Steering Wheel

Up to this point in my life I was COMPLETELY UNAWARE how badly I needed an inflatable chair....

Further proof that CF is full of well rounded off topic knowledge...

You know people with hang-ups about the taxes thing and the cost of the rescue really kill me.

The rescuers are there to provide a combat support service. If a fighter or bomber crashes in the ocean, they want their expensive pilot back and they sure as hell want to know what happened to the likely more expensive aircraft that was lost.

So if people don't like it that their taxes go to rescue civilians when the SAR services aren't chasing down lost servicemen, they should express their opinions to their elected officials and direct them to reduce defense budgets. In the meantime it's good practice.

One thing that I thought was of particular interest when watching the rescue crew's press conference was that the crew expressed how deeply rewarding it was for them to rescue actual Americans for a change.

Sounds like that particular air rescue wing from California covers all the way down to the equator and as far west as Hawaii.

In their own words, while they mostly save merchant mariners and fisherman of all nations, they RARELY ever have occasion to rescue people from the good old US of A.

How do you think the tax weenies would feel knowing that their tax dollars by and large are being spent to rescue citizens of our pacific rim neighbors who are busy robbing the oceans off our shores blind of their resources?

I believe Atoll had expressed concern about Taiwanese long liners in the area stripping Rebel Heart before it could be recovered. When those same long liners have troubles off our shore do you think they call the Taiwanese Air Force to save them? Ha

Re: The Steering Wheel

See this thread would have been taken so much better if it was ...if you were being rescued and you could take 1 item with you what would it be.. but I don't think that's really what you were going for any way..

To me is seems a bit like passing that new bathroom vanity out the window to a firefighter on the ladder.

Perhaps there is a good explanation for this. the shaft sheared off, was trying to repair a broken chain and had removed the wheel to access the pedestal better, etc, etc.

After 35 years of sailing, I can't imagining being in a life or death situation and getting out my tools to remove the steering wheel......
For Christ's sake he and his family just lost their house give him a break and quit nit-picking the little crap. If you had a serious question about what type of comm device they used to call for help it would be worth debating. Not this petty stuff.

Not to mention your analogy is all wrong. It compares nothing like a house burning down. There was no urgent need to disembark as fast as possible. It was a controlled safe situation, they had plenty of time to plan ahead and think things through.

A much better analogy would be that: it was like if a hurricane was coming your way and your house was right in the middle of the path. You have a few days lead time and you know that due to the forecast your house will most likely be lost. You can only take a few things that will fit in your car and you decide to take the door knocker off your front door because it was the first thing you bought for your house when you moved in. In other words there was NO immediate threat to life and they had time to take one thing that will remind them of their dream. I find it very poetic.

What's next do you want to criticize why his daughter was in a back pack carrier and not duct taped to his chest instead?
