Re: Atlantic Delivery

There are 82 cruisers in this thread right now waiting for Boaty to make a speech.

Boaty, hurry up and eat your steak and chips.

It's like waiting for a presidential speech.

My oven is a bit heavy for that, and according to the instructions, does not have that feature built in.

Naahhh, mate! because we know that this one will be interesting, and even allowing for Boaties florid style, likely nearer to the truth.

Just created a new thread for this drift.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

I really hope for Boatman's unbiased and impartial report from "Lagoon Catamaran Atlantic test".
It would make interesting reading to learn from.

More interesting really (and more independent), than tests in sailing magazines

That's my point mate, it is dramatic to us loyal readers. We're mates.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

I have to confess content on this thread often became much too dramatic and hyped for my taste.

When and if Boatie chooses to share what he's learned, that's when this topic would get interesting, at least for me.

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Blue Crab, and everybody:

I think what jimmyjazz is trying to get at is that the thread MADE UP an emergency where no emergency existed, and questions the whole process.

Boatie had it all under control. In the absence of the infamous SPOT, we'd simply have waited for him to get to Horta, perhaps wondering why it was taking so long (although the wind direction and lack of strength could have explained that) and make whatever type of entrance he preferred.

The emotional momentum generated by CF has wound up costing the owner of the Bonne Etoile some money, JP (who is apparently a good guy) a fine, and goodness only knows what effect all of this shall have had on Boatie's relationship with his employer, or future jobs.

Maybe, as I suggested before, this would be a good time to sit tight, and consider the effects of our invasion of a private relationship, and wait for Boatie to address us, if he wishes.

Ann

So, since Boaty didn't ask them for help and also didn't use the pan or mayday words, why would they be out looking for him? Even if they did broadcast on the radio that they were out looking for the cat, how can they prove that JP was aware of those broadcasts or that they were also looking for him? Maybe he happened to duck out of the cabin when they were transmitting, or engine noise was too loud, so didn't hear them? Fining him sounds pretty crazy to me.
just got this from jp about the fine he got.,

"Good evening Alex , I sure will send a bottle wan off this days after I
sorted out Phil's problems .( i asked him to send me a bottel of aguadente in return for all the phone calls i made)

And yes I have some problems with M Police because I was so honest to tell
dem watt I was going to do , and then the port captain ask me to com over to
is office , were I was told that I toot a sailboat as no conditions to tow a
boat !!!!

so I wanted to organize a inspection the following off my boat ,
witch a seed why not now , but he mend a official inspection witch had to
pay for , so I sad how match , and he sad something around 20 E I ting , but
when day started to make some phone calls to find out et turn out to be 150
E wish I toot was a bit over the top ,

so I just walked out off the office ,pist off wasting so match time there for noting

.So when we came in day were
waiting for me to tell me that I ignored the order of the Port Commandant
not to live for the rescue and towing the boat .

In de mean time there rescue
boat was out all day looking for Phil ( spending 2000 l of fuel !!!! )
not organised , so day are a bet hurt in there ego I think .

We rescued,salveched and tow already a dozen boats in before , without any problems ,but this Port Captain is new and want to sow off are watt I don't now .

I can comfurm that without the tracker its a deverend madder if you looking
for a boat in the nord Atlantic as you now ,, from all the things we did
here all ready there was wan case we cout not find the boat .

So you can post this comment on the forum if you want .

Best regards JP & Judi

Re: Atlantic Delivery

Thank you Ann, you explained my take of these last few days perfectly. I meant no disrespect to Atol or JP. I have nothing but respect for Boatman. Cheers !
