Ah. Oops. And some Aussies even know how to spell the name of the product. Sorry, I thought it was spelled with a K.


Sent from my iPhone so apologies for weird autocorrect typos.

Well, I would have believed you till I got down to the boat, and by then I would have forgotten anyway. You should have bluffed.

Personally, I had no side effects.
The stuff seems so "bonzer" thats its bloody illegal.
5% sorry about thread drift too btw.
It's odd that we can import it into Australia without a problem. I get it through mail order from New Zealand.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

Sorta tangential to the original thread is this article about a row boat that had been abandoned 400 miles off Portugal and recovered 3 months later off Ireland. It does happen....

Great suggestion, thanks!

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

No new sighting that I am aware of. There is progress though. I'm getting a lot of feed back from the mass emails we sent out. Marinas asking follow up questions, folks writing to say they were going out that weekend and will keep a sharp eye out, etc. I was very surprised folks responded to the emails and it helps to show that progress is being made. Hopefully one step closer to recovering Dagny.
Thanks.

Re: Tragedy Strikes.

I have been following this thread since day one. I haven't contributed because all the good stuff was already being said and the silly stuff just bored me....well...silly.

I wish the best ending for this horrible situation and Gil has behaved and written with true humility - admitting his possible errors and not rising to some of the crud that was being flung at him.

I would like to say that I admire everyone who is in this knee deep trying to help, but especially Ocean Girl, has me standing in awe of the generosity of spirit that exists in the community of sailors. This is not just talk, she (and others) have expended hours and days trying to help get a fix on the boat, using every resource available to get the word out. It's not just empathy which I imagine we all feel, it's boots on the ground, work while you have the flu, research the area, email the marinas, coordinate with other websites, WORK.

To Ocean Girl and all the rest who have been working so hard helping Gil and Dagny, you have my utter admiration and respect. Thank you for giving me some kind of reaffirmation I didn't even know I needed.

The mods are graciously looking into making a dedicated sub forum to help recovery efforts like Dagny. Next time this happens we will be better prepared I think.
Thanks for all the kind words

Now that right there sounds like a grand idea.

Maybe they could implement a BS filter in it?
