I didn't say the CG 'made-up' the false MayDay's. Why any boater would radio
false mayday's just makes no sense, what is their motivation?
This man's 'sounds like' the ones in the false maydays is what is 'made-up'.
If he has a distinctive sound, perhaps others in Richardson Bay are mocking his voice with false MayDay calls to set him up, and get him thrown out of 'their' place he invaded?? That makes more sense to me than some foreigner arriving buying
a new boat, and then sending out false MayDays ! Although equally unlikely.
Maydays are probably kids
not understanding how serious it is, like bomb threats to their high school
, they should be found and prosecuted.
But think for a moment, what has this man done? Sitting on his new boat, he is 'harrassed' by the CG because he hasn't gotten it documented yet? They ask to board, he says 'no', not being from the USA maybe he doesn't understand 'no' is not a possible answer? Decides its time to go already, those jerks in the bay hate him, now the authorities are harrasing him.
Just another side to the story, I don't know what the reality is, certainly the 'news show' or even the police slant things to they view.
I mean the guy could have kidnapped children
or planned to blow up the golden gate, the police need to think worse case, that is their job, the truth comes out later, maybe MUCH later.
