Lori I have to work with them every working day of the week. and yep they are to stupid to even know they are stupid. And it is usually every one elses fault. They may have juist been caught red handed breaking the law, but it ain't their fault, Oh no..... it is the cops fault.
First things in life are smokes and booze and then come food and rent. Oh the stories I could tell. They are so pathetic they make you laugh.

Personal Experience, all you need to experience strange things at sea is Ratheon Marine electronics.

You know, if we ever get to your corner of the world, or you and the Admiral get to ours, I'm sure we could kill a large bottle of Captain Morgans comparing stories.....

Lol, when I was a kid in the '70's, my friends and I loved going to the matinee to see those conspiracy "documentaries" about Big Foot, the Bermuda Triangle, Chariots of the Gods, etc., etc.

Great spooky Saturday fun!

I was aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer out in the triangle and witnessed the main binnacle compass spinning randomly for about a minute.

I think something odd happens out there.

Fair leads,
Aaron

What about the West Marine Circle? Everytime I cruise through their waters, my money disappears...

Celestialsailor, that is very funny.
Aaron, sorry dude, but I lean toward the skeptic society. There are too many scientific priciples that get broken with such reported scenarios of compass spinning. IMO it's not something but someone that is at play.

Alan & Aron
Theres just somethings that have to be seen to be beleaved!
In an earler post on this theard I wrote>

Ok , Iím going to tell you something very strange that happened to me , and I would not have believed it had I not seen it myself, so its ok if you donít believe me, I understand!.
I picked up a dive charter in Palm Beach , FL. 8 of us including myself & crew.
We were in the area of Freeport, Grand Bahamas & pulled in to the Xanado to have lunch, after lunch I when back to the boat and when I stepped onboard, I noticed the compass going around 360* over & over again, in an irregular way.
This when on for 20 minutes & the rest of the group came back in time to witness this first hand.
So I suppose there is somthing there,
Ive made over 100 charters over 10 years in that area & this was the only time I noticed anything strange & it happened at the dock !


SOoooooo there you go beleave it or not

Ram, I think a fish swallowed a magnet and was swimming in circles under the boat.

The whole Bermuda Triangle thing is a crock of doo doos. All hyped up by hollywood and the likes just to sell movies.

All these stories about people, boats and planes going missing is plain silly and purely fiction.

We are currently close to the middle of the Bermuda Triangle and have seen nothing, heard nothing and have yet to disappear.

Sorry I'm wrong right at this minite it looks like the US airforce are over head playing games. I didn't realise they still had P51's flying but they do look good.

Na this Bermuda Triangle disappearing thing is 100% a comple
