    Thank goodness there will never be a shortage of dumb you-know-what's that take a baby out on a sailboat to sail around the world.

    And, thank goodness for the Air Guard and Navy for putting their lives on the line to rescue the poor baby who wasn't blessed with smart parents.

    You got that right JL.
    Began a cirmumnavigation once in the '70's. Got across the Atlantic (single handed) and returned after spending a week in Horta, Azores. Enough is enough. It really was pretty boring. I can imagine the panic from those morons!

    Missions like that are worth every penny and minute spent.

    But JL, some folks grow up spending their entire lives on a boat. One can never tell when a child will need help--be it in a sailboat or a $4 mil home on Easy Street.

    Natural-born adventure junkies like those LIVE for a hazardous job well done. It's the non-stop drills that drive 'em crazy! I know 'cause I...was.

    No patience with people who endanger their small children. It's not like they live in China and grew up on a Junk. They should thrill seek on their own time.

    I have no issues with liveaboards, I did it myself for ten years.
    The issue that I have with this "event" was the child was too young to even start such an adventure.

    Yet "endangered" is a relative term. They may have been around ships and water for many years. Would I have done it? No, but I'm not that fond of liveaboards either. I'd want a bigger boat.

    What bothers me more is the lady ("mature adult", so to speak) with the big metal booger on her lip in the report.

    Some people have no business having kids.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
