Sorry - the conspiracy was not that interesting.

I said some of the local captains (NOT the one I had the problem with) had a prior history with the captain I interacted with and the local captains may have used me to push the issue that a long time ago there were problems.

No one was out to get anyone - it was just two skippers who disagreed on the application of Rules 9, 13, and 18

Nothing more dramatic than that and I think this thread easily shows there are many ways to interpret the rules and the situation.

There was no evil or malicious intent - just a difference of opinion/


Why should the truth get in the way of my good story.

The reasons would make a very long post and the feedback supports that. Personally, I encourage you not to read my posts, as I do with with some other posts. Part of the forum game. Have a nice day.
