  1. Looks like I will be rooting for ya Kiwis again. I cannot abide the business practices of Richare DeVos. Turns out that Amway is also present in Aotearoa.
  2. His greatest achievement has been to type all of the notices out, on a little bitty screen . . with one finger.
  3. I will be honored to chip in a few Yankee Dollars
  4. A quick comment from an alternate universe: ML King taught us that, if we determine that a law is unjust, we can and should break it; but we should also be prepared to accept the legal consequences (without whining). That way, we can show our respect for the law in general while breaking a particular law. Kind of like Socrates' approach. On the whole, I support Mr. Smith. Who knows, he might be able to strike a blow for the freedom of the seas by his action.
  5. OMG !! Survival conditions - hope the gent makes it. Is circumnavigating the isles always that sketchy ?
  6. Neither China nor Russia, or the two combined . . are any sort of rational military threat. But who is rational these days ?
  7. BP's posted photo is downright embarrassing . . could not figure out its origin.
  8. Glad he made it in . . that forecast lee shore big wind looked really scary. Good on ya mate !! Just don't let that Kea eat yer boat ! Salute from the Sweetwater Seas
  9. A sailor's worst nightmare . . the sound of big waves breaking on the shore at night. Hope he makes it - the gent has some stones.
  10. A five thousand year-old town . . wiped out by the wonders of Western Civ. Had not known that story - thanks for posting it
  11. As an aside, hopefully not much thread drift . . . Boats, kayaks, bicycles etc are selling very well in the US People are apparently looking for non-close-up recreation. A good time to sell a boat here actually Sailing Clubs here are starting up regattas again - just without the cheek to jowl parties
  12. Ahem, now about that OP . . . I guess that explains why the Canadians claim the right to exclude US boats from their waters, not just anchoring, but sailing over them. But don't get me wrong, the USAean gummint is worse. Our continent could be witnessing the unraveling of 200 year old Rush-Bagot Treaty Sad
