Catamaran sailor kidnaps his 3 kids

This just goes to show you what a dastardley bunch all catamaran sailors are.
Just kidding.
I'm posting this on the multihull section because on the news last night they had a picture of the boat and I think it was a cat but it was hard to tell. Could have been a tri and you know that those guys area nefarious bunch.
Just kidding, again.
I had met one of these kids a couple of years ago when my friends kid brought him over for a summer barbeque at my house. My friends kid has already talked to the kidnapee and they actually had some fun on the boat with dad. I don't think they will be spending much time with him in the future. LOL.
I'd like to see pics of the boat. Anybody?

Re: Catamaran sailor kidnaps his 3 kids

It seems to me that most 12, 13 or 15 year olds could jump ship pretty easily if they wanted to.

So sad to hear how adults act.

Re: Catamaran sailor kidnaps his 3 kids

Deja vu all over again

"Sterling Hayden often professed distaste for film acting, claiming he did it mainly to pay for his ships and voyages. In 1958, after a bitter divorce, he was awarded custody of his children. He defied a court order and sailed to Tahiti with all four children, Christian, Dana, Gretchen and Matthew."[

Re: Catamaran sailor kidnaps his 3 kids

And I don't think it was a multi, since within a half-mile of Bahamian waters the Coast Guard caught up with them, had it be a multi, he would have made it past the line. lol

statistically most kidnappings involve the non-custodial parent.
same crime - same police/fed action.

Re: Catamaran sailor kidnaps his 3 kids

That boat which is a Catalac 12M is for sale now on Tropic Cat's site. It's aptly named Lunacy. Might be a good deal, too.

Never have HS as a guest Salty.. untidy buga's.. and no sense of humour..
