I was thinking what Nan would say if I were taking photos at a time like that. -- DaveEvans -- 2/28/2013, 12:26 pm
She'd probably be concerned if you weren't taking photos, Dave. -- Tom Young -- 2/28/2013, 1:14 pm
"If you're going to take pictures, can I steer?" -- DaveEvans -- 3/4/2013, 6:23 am
Other than three aproaching the tanker, I only count one taken by Captn or crew on Viewfinder. Rest are all tanker crew -- Blye -- 2/28/2013, 3:43 pm
Different forums have different group opinions. Here's Sailnet on the Viewfinder. -- Tom Young -- 3/1/2013, 4:46 am
Thanks for the link. I think some missed the point that the first rudder failure was complete. It fell completely off -- Blye -- 3/1/2013, 7:46 am
That boat could have been saved... -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/2/2013, 4:42 am
I doubt it. That "real sailor" hairy chested stuff is good for cruising adventure books,...:) -- Tom Young -- 3/2/2013, 5:12 am
I don't know, Tom... -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/2/2013, 8:59 pm
I don't get what this couple has to do with those onboard Viewfinder, Jon. -- Tom Young -- 3/3/2013, 5:10 am
Consider that for perhaps a good number of sailors... -- GeneC -- 3/3/2013, 7:09 am
Well, aside from the fact that they managed to complete the same passage of 2200 NM... -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/3/2013, 3:13 pm
Anyone who's only had one wife and been married long knows -- Larry - DH -- 3/3/2013, 5:46 pm
LOL!!! Bang on IMHO and don't forget, there were two green crew onboared that wanted off before the rudder fell off. -- Blye -- 3/3/2013, 6:06 pm
Well, then - maybe, just MAYBE... -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/3/2013, 6:48 pm
In addition, Larry - perhaps some men who've had more than one wife/girlfriend/partner have simply learned... -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/3/2013, 7:20 pm
That's another valid point of view, Jon -- Larry - DH -- 3/4/2013, 8:55 am
If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy. -- Westcoaster -- 3/4/2013, 10:11 am
Pass on your only likely rescue, take four lives, and attempt to sail across the Atlantic, with no rudder? -- Tom Young -- 3/4/2013, 3:31 am
Tom, I've stated from the outset that he made the prudent decision, for he and his crew... -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/4/2013, 10:25 am
"Prudent decision", sure, you said that, Jon. But look at all your criticism of the man and his crew. -- Tom Young -- 3/4/2013, 10:41 am
Well, sorry I can't be more effusive in my praise of this brilliantly conceived and executed voyage... (grin) -- Jon Eisberg -- 3/4/2013, 12:09 pm
Thanks, Jon, that's much better. -- Tom Young -- 3/4/2013, 2:07 pm
Another way to pole out the second jib -- Karl S/V Mabel Rose -- 3/2/2013, 6:50 am
What really bothers me is the fact this was the third rudder failure -- D'Arcy, Islay Mist C&C27 -- 3/2/2013, 7:27 am
yes, Yes, YES!!!!!...... -- Delezynski, Nor'Sea27 -- 3/2/2013, 7:47 am
Mainesail sort of explained the actual scenario. -- Tom Young -- 3/2/2013, 9:04 am
Designing and building rudders is NOT that tough -- Todd D -- 3/2/2013, 9:33 am
I bet this is the attitude the rudder builder(rebuilder) had across the pond. -- Tom Young -- 3/2/2013, 9:48 am
That is my feeling to Todd. You can't over build it and it's too easy to under build it -- D'Arcy, Islay Mist C&C27 -- 3/2/2013, 12:08 pm
You are free to disagree -- Todd D -- 3/2/2013, 3:04 pm
Agree and disagree -- Jeremy McGeary -- 3/2/2013, 8:21 pm
"rudder design and building takes some experience all around to do well", is what I said. -- Tom Young -- 3/3/2013, 5:05 am
I maintain that a rudder replacement isn't all that hard -- Todd D -- 3/3/2013, 6:27 am
If it's that easy, why did the owner have a problem? -- Tom Young -- 3/3/2013, 6:44 am
I suspect his problem was in two areas... -- Todd D -- 3/3/2013, 7:21 am
Lots of speculation here -- Jeremy McGeary -- 3/3/2013, 8:36 pm
I suspect you have not visited the... -- Brian Woloshin -- 3/3/2013, 11:46 am
Hard? -- SG -- 3/3/2013, 5:13 pm
