You know there is nothing more awks than having to be rescued by the US Coast Guard in your bubble…AGAIN. Come on dude, endurance running in your hydropod from Florida to the Bermuda Triangle is a pipe dream. Give up, it’s not going to happen, get a day job, find another hobby, try land. Naww, and you get a $40,000 fine. Life can be a bitch.
A little word of warning to Aussie sailors who are considering buying a yacht on the US Ebay website because it is a damn sight cheaper than buying one Down Under. Please check the friggin weather forecast (especially the winter storm warnings) before attempting to sail it back to Australia from Rhode Island . The father and son team, who had just purchased the 43ft vessel, didn’t get far…hmm, Nantucket …. before they struck trouble. Ferocious winds ripped their sails to threads and high seas made upchucking inevitable. Enter the US Coast Guards who rescued their sorry asses.
