that makes much more sense but 25 mph that's right in my wind genny's sweet spot for 400 watts output .

Oh come on. Portlandia is documentary??? I actually laughed out loud when I read that. It's more like comedic satire. Similar to Seinfeld. And no I don't live in Portland...

Iím thinking Ellen will see through the Bull poop and not want these nit wits on her show.[/QUOTE]
Only if she's ever done any serious sailing. Look at how much exposure these women have gotten already. Kinda sad when stupidity gets more news than actual accomplishments, like Jeane Socrates sailing solo, nonstop around the world at age 70.

She may want them on because of the LGBTQ angle, but Ellen has chartered many boats and didn't get to where she is by being a dummy or being conned.

Chartering a boat in the Caribbean, and sailing across the ocean out of sight of land are two different things. It's not all 15 knots and sunny skies...

I'm not a fan of the show, in fact I've never watched it; but I do know that Ellen is a smart person.... very smart. She can figure it out.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

The weed on the side is in the shape of a wave. If that shape reflects the wave form of travelling through the water they were travelling very slowly. At hull speed the wave form would have been much longer and only rising at the rear quarter.

Well, I don't know but it sure looks to me like a boat that was pitching and rolling in an oil slick.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

Did I miss the LGBTQ angle? Is just something that was assumed? If you see two guys together on a boat do you assume the same thing? Back in the early sixties, my favorite bar in Olongapo was the Gay Club. I wonder if the name has changed? I used to have a desire to go to Gay Parie'. Guess that place is gone. The only label I have attached to this boating story is "stupid".

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

"Couple and dogs rescued" - in my dictionary "couple" means more than two friends. Not being native though...

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

The LGBT angle is pretty clear if you watch the video on the Navy ship.

At least to me.

Re: Couple and dogs rescued after months at sea

According to wunderground.com, on the 5th of May, 2017, the average wind speed was 8 knots with gusts to 28 knots. It was slightly less on the 6th and 7th; significantly less on the 8th of May. Claiming that they experienced Force 11 conditions could be an exaggeration.

Fair winds and calm seas.

After the multiple Megalodon sightings and the boat-incompatible Kiribati I am not much surprised...
