    Newest report on our castaways...

    They are asking for donations to purchase a vessel that is adequate enough to launch a Mark 48. They have Googled the interwebs. This projectile will totally destroy any sandbar that stands in their way in acquiring total happiness. The dude has a Ginger...all he needs now is a Mary Ann and a professor. Everybody knows that the professor is gay. His only purpose is to attain radio waves from a coconut.

    I agree, Stealthy. To take a risk is one thing, to expect others to rescue you if the risk turns bad is another.

    At one point in our travels, our boat was disabled due to a mechanical failure. We went to work, earned the money and fixed it ourselves. The only help we got was a tow from a friendly bay fisherman to get in to the dock.

    These folks with the 49 year old boat should learn from the experience and, if they still want to follow that particular dream, be better prepared next time.

    it is hard to believe folks donate for their cause. Other folks are paying the bill for their stupidity. If that was me trying that crap - that Go Fund Me account would have a different four letter word starting with “F”, replacing the word “Fund”.

    Naw, you're not stupid. It's just a sign of the messed up world we live in where there are people who think it's ok to do stupid things and expect others to bail you out. Some people even believe it's ok to sign a legal contract and then not live up to your end of the deal just because you don't want to.

    GO FUND MY Hunting LEASE. I had to pay bills and taxes this year so I can't afford my duck lease. My poor dog named My Owner Is A Mooch, won't be able to do his favorite thing and that's retrieve ducks. I only have a half a box of Experts left and a wore out 870 Express to shoot. Any help would be appreciated. It' s only $ 20,000.00. That would be a good start. Oh and if you have a good use mud motor, I'd take that as a donation too. Peace and Love to All!! Think that will work?????????

    Probably not, most folks that donate to that junk are liberal anti hunter types. You also mentioned firearms big no no. You would probably have just as much luck with a Benefit squirrel hunt to Save the Whales....

    Heck no the dog makes you look really bad. How dare that mean man make that poor dog wade out in that frigid water putting those poor dead ducks in its mouth and blah blah blah heck they would probably seek your arrest.....

    They are 26 and 24 and "tired of working". Well boo freaking hoo!!

    I've worked since I was 15 or so, they want to quit work and then want working people to fund them. Getting over $14K shows just how stupid people are. It would have been nice to see them not get a penny.

    I like Blondi Hassler. He led the Cockleshell Heroes in WWII -- they paddled in from the sea, up the river, and sank ships moored in Bordeaux, one of the great commando feats of the war.

    After the war, he founded the Observer-Star Transatlantic Race (OSTAR) and was a highly respected sailor. He said sailboats should not carry radios: "We go to sea for our own pleasure, and if we get in trouble we have no right to ask someone else to risk his life to rescue us."
