  1. Shut the eff up mokes, you've been claiming you were going to leave for 10 years now. You're not leaving keyboard warrior. You were a crybaby when I last left claiming you were leaving, you still are a crybaby claiming you're leaving.
  2. While vessels under 1600 GT are not specifically required to manage their speed in regards to wake, they are still required to operate in a prudent matter which does not endanger life, limb, or property (46 USC 2302). Nor do the Navigation Rules exonerate any vessel from the consequences of neglect (Rule 2), which, among other things, could be unsafe speeds (Rule 6), improper lookout (Rule 5), or completely ignoring your responsibilities as prescribed by the Navigation Rules. Please go take a CG course immediately.
  3. Repeat after me "I am responsible for my wake." Again "I am responsible for my wake." One more time "I am responsible for my wake." While vessels under 1600 GT are not specifically required to manage their speed in regards to wake, they are still required to operate in a prudent matter which does not endanger life, limb, or property (46 USC 2302). Nor do the Navigation Rules exonerate any vessel from the consequences of neglect (Rule 2), which, among other things, could be unsafe speeds (Rule 6), improper lookout (Rule 5), or completely ignoring your responsibilities as prescribed by the Navigation Rules.
  4. disregard
  5. "best reel" changes here nearly daily. Just skip all the silliness and get a Charlton.
  6. After hearing about Dom's fish, I'm just gonna quit fishing.
  7. Yes? And this proves what? That you're a stalker?
  8. And you're part of the problem, not the solution.
  9. You need a commercial permit, and the associated safety equipment, and comm inspection. And feds catching you without those will not treat you nicely.
  10. As they should. Poaching is poaching. He plead guilty. He knew what he was doing.
  11. http://www.fishnerds.com/kayakers-punk-great-white-shark/ PLYMOUTH, MA: Two kayakers thought they were pretty funny when they imitated a couple of lounging seals on Wednesday night, but a vacationing great white shark thought it was no laughing matter. β€œIt kind of hurt my feelings.” reports the shark. β€œI bit down and felt hard, tasteless plastic. When the two female humans fell in the water, I knew I had been punked.” Usually humans are easy to identify with their thin useless fins, bulbous heads and funky smell, but these two were riding in seal decoys. Shark community leaders are concerned that the human media will have a field day with this case of mistaken identity and warn fellow sharks to be on the look out for news helicopters and rednecks in fishing boats. - See more at: http://www.fishnerds.com/kayakers-punk-great-white-shark/#sthash.ahbjW3UU.dpuf
  12. Nobody should worry about crap, its not just going to be some apocalyptic thing of getting bitten, for those that feel that way, well, sell your fishing gear. I'm sure plenty of us will happily buy it up for short money from em. rst: pm in a couple.
  13. Yes, a nation of 22m "out-beach/water-uses" the US without even blinking. That whole 'all major concentrations of people being on the coast' kinda helps. Also a culture of being more interested in say, sailing or surfing than NASCAR helps. And have no effect on the attack numbers. Oops. (I had forgotten about that, and its proving useless and a hot pol topic) 40,000 on a hot day (total) You only have to be waist deep or less to get attacked. One of the gutters.
  14. Places like Sydney, the shire, and north have people at the beach every day 365 days a year. Its not a lot when you realize people take water sports far far more serious than anyone here in the US. People there don't freak out and decide everything needs to die because it might ruin their day. Lets put it this way, Bondi Beach (just south of Sydney) has a 'daily capacity' of 10,000. Thats *one* beach. Wrong way. Naushon. Oh how quickly people forget.
  15. 207 in the past 20 years in Oz. 891 since 1792. They're also a nation with a FAR higher beach use population than the US. But this isn't Oz, so their numbers are pointless. That wasn't the Vineyard, and it was 10 years ago. The next time a GW was spotted anywhere near there was this year.
