Shane strikes again


Recommended Posts

Thames Coromandel facebook group I belong to sprung into life today with the story of Shane getting shipwrecked at Port Jackson this week and losing his boat. The question was asked by a friend of the person that had taken him in up there. 100 posts later of people that had mainly been ripped off by him, the thread got deleted.

 

He's NZ's equivalent of Rimas who provides so much entertainment on Sailing Anarchy.

Judging by the deflections it looks like you got the Jones fanboys excited Puff :razz:

Who are you talking about KM?

this isn't a political thread, fairly sure they aren't talking about Shane Jones, NZ First MP and face-palm reining champion.

 

PS, political threads are now only allowed in the smalltalk section way way way down the page near canal boating and Yachting NZ...

This is marine talk, where marine stuff is discussed.

His boss is a thieving lieing arsehole so his lackys being of the same mold should come no surprise.

I'm afraid you completely lost me(and probably a lot of others) here KM, pretty sure the thread is about the former owner of a variant with a wood burner, and then a big schooner, last heard of running for cover

Unfortunately  I left my decoder ring at home, and we were away last winter avoiding Rimas when he disappeared at Texas reef by Rabi , Phew , near miss.

So I don't know what Shanes boat is or what he's been up to over that period.

Myself included. NZ seems overly rich in thieving toss pots rip off artists called Shane.

 

Note to self - Shane is OK in this thread but not the other one where Shane is OK unlike he would be in this one.

Hi Puff, one of my Coromandel attached sisters was telling me tales of unhappy people with relation to this individual.  She was fascinated by the connection here.  

 

In reflection on the likes of Shane (and even the crazy Russian) I sometimes think that I've been a bit too reserved over the years/not taken enough risk, but then the worst I've ever done to a boat is crack the c/b case hitting the Milford reef many, many years ago (and many other's have done much worse getting in there)

there is a zone of confusion about some people

 

you darn't get drawn into

 

a vortex 

 

up is down, in is out

 

yours is mine 

 

the truth a concept acknowledged

 

but rarely relating to

 

the spinner's frame of mind
