Default Working on Engine in Storm-- Duh!!! Feared Lost at SEa


http://www.scpr.org/blogs/hettie-lyn...-indian-ocean/

What's wrong with Abby Sunderland?

What a stupid thing to do. Working on her engine in a storm. 35-foot seas,
60 knot winds. Duh!

Why is it that today's so-called sailor can't wean themselves off their
motors? What good is a motor anyway in a storm in the middle of an ocean?

Forget the motor and take care of managing the ship under sail, bare poles,
drogue or what have you but stop with the insanity of relying on the motor.

Ho hum. Several knock-downs in high seas, and the main mast breaks.
Your antenna rigs are in tatters, and you have only an engine left.

What else can you do? That's a question that beats nealbur, apparently.

Moron. You're putting the cart before the horse. She was working on the
engine when she got dismasted. She was working on the engine so she could
charge the batteries for communications because they were low. Her not
paying attention to business (sailing) CAUSED the dismasting. This is NOT
seamanship. This is lunacy. But, what else can be expected from a teen girl
with the last name of Sunderland. Her failed voyage was nothing but a
publicity STUNT by stupid parents who happily risk the life of their
offspring because they are publicity whores.
