Yup, nobody died and the hulk is dealt with. A CG heli ride was probably much cheaper than disposing of that thing on the taxpayers dime. Fortunate no one died though. What a nutcase.

Start here.

Get a jug of whiskey and a spittoon for your chaw and start at the beginning. No skipping ahead. There will be a test later.

Damn! That's worse than being rickrolled.

BTW, The Diving Californian is currently listed on Ebay for $499,000.

Yes, it got renamed.

Re: Flyin Hawaiian Breaking Up?

It just keeps getting weirder and weirder. Someone who says he/she was on the boat posted a comment on the CG page:

I was the first mate, the wood beams it was built from were faulty, they started to crack, we tryed everything we could to hold her together, we tied n chaned bothe sides together, but it did nit help , my wife the navigator is 7 months pregnant, the baby is ok too. We lost everything. The CG did a perfect job. THANK YOU ALL.

Coast Guard rescues 5 people from sinking sailing boat off the coast of Monterey | Coast Guard News

Then our buds at SA looked the person up. There is the KKK, Christianity, and hermaphrodite in the profile details about this person. I never thought these 3 words could be used together in describing oneself! I'm just posting a link to the page so don't shoot the messenger!!!!!

Yup...Musta been the faulty Home Depot 2X4's...or sorry...beams. Couldn't have been the lack of Engineering into the design.
