well let's see, attempt #1 the wife was pregnant and they had to turn back, they made it back. attempt #2 they created a situation where a multimillion dollar rescue operation had to be deployed.

you guys really want to give these two bozos a boat to attempt it a third time? im not going hamm, im just thinking about that poor toddler, and that poor little 3 year old girl.

a 3 year old is a toddler as well

Cross post from the other forum:

My neighbor is a harbor pilot. I don't remember the exact verbiage of his title, but it included "master" and "unlimited tonnage." He graduated from the New York Maritime College. I asked him for his opinion.

He said Faceman's "captain" certification is a two-week course that no one fails. He also said he has known people who tried to sail across the Pacific and were never heard from again. His cliffs: Faceman is an idiot, imho, tbh.

Hopefully they made him watch as they pounded it.

A lot smaller of a trip and they only had one kid at the time :dunno:

Yeah.
I haven't followed his blog but just sometimes his G+ updates. He used to post a lot when he was around. It became less often and you know how you check facebook every once in a while when you want. Ya you miss some things

The insurance company would reimburse eric and go after the government.
Then that's the government and they'd play it off as some necessary thing I'm sure and the insurance company would just be fucked.

you need to read Jake from state farms blog. He vowed to make sure Faceman gets his money or a new yatch.

:rofl: Try not to read to much into it. I'm here for the lulz.

So you are here to laugh at the illness of a little kid and suffering of kids based on a poor choice by a fellow OTer? I bet you are a fun guy and not a complete dick at all.


I'm not saying eric should be lauded for his trip but you don't have to be a giant dick about it

here he is handing over the wheel of his boat to the rescue as something to remember it by. As someone who has spent over 5 years getting my boat rebuilt to do a similar trip, I can't imagine this feeling.

I don't care what you think if him or his decision to do this journey with the kids, if you wish someones home to burn down (or sink in this case), you are mentally ill and should seek help.

I think his ship sinking is the best thing that could have happened to him.
