Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

Here is a good thread I think. I'm as guilty as anyone for spending too much attention to this story, so I humbly suggest this thread deserves more attention now... in case anyone might doubt a woman's abilities or accomplishments at sea...
http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...rs-176284.html

Good work, Steady

The boat is definitely a Morgan 45 Starret and Jenks Center Cockpit model. Google the boat and look at photos of the few you can find listed for sale. It's quite visually unique, with that split-level slotted toe rail. There is no way this is a 36 foot boat. We have a 35' boat and Sea Nymph is quite a bit larger than SV Barry Duckworth.

For a scathing review of this boat check out Jeff H's opinion of it over on Sailnet. These boats don't sell for a whole lot of money due to the reputation, so they can often be picked up cheap -especially if they have a whole lot of problems.

As for why it is incorrectly documented within the USCG records you would have to ask the original owners who first documented it. You can not blame this one on Appel at least. The USCG will not let you change vital information in their records like the boat's length just by filling in a form.

"Close enough for Government work"

My guess as to why it is documented incorrectly is either a simple clerical error years ago, or maybe folks just like under-reporting size as many places will charge fees based on length and will gather that data from the official documents.

Our own boat is incorrectly listed on our documents as being one foot longer than the Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus 35 specifications say. It is 34.5' but the USCG document has it a 35.5' instead. I'd love to correct that, but...heck, we didn't even bother to change the hailing port when we re-documented it in our name. With all the other forms and stuff that had to be done, like ship's station license and such it would have just been easier in the long run to have changed our own names to match those of the former owners.

That article gives support to the view that Appel likes to live a fantasy life, and has used her life as the basis for fantasy writing (erotic short novels) and had previously lost another boat on the rocks outside the harbor in Oahu.

The article is very revealing. (Pun intended.)

If you're dating a dominatrix, never ever suggest it's time to hit the sack...

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

Based upon the article, she seems to have lived an "interesting" life. Now she has lots of "matter" for her new book.
The other woman can write a new diet book, "I lost weight by going to sea with a crazy woman."

Wifey B: Oh no, you've given Jennifer her next business idea, running diet cruises to nowhere. She just takes you out on the boat and starves you for five months.

I wonder if those two will go to sea again, together?
Anyone interview the dogs?
