hope it didn't stink up the whole beach like it did when a whale washed up on my beach in NC. (I have a photo on here) Pretty much had to hold your nose within a 1 mile radius.

Oh...THIS is what got you started Joggly!...I forgot I even put this here. I was kinda amped up at the time by the possibility of finally getting some good hurricane swells yesterday(It is 12:20 AM Friday now...still amped...but disappointed by Thursday's waves/conditions)...after a miserably long, hot, humid, FLAT summer. I was just messing in my ignorance. Didn't mean to stir up what sounds like a sensitive subject for you. Sorry if I offended you.

Don't get me started ...Navigational Rules do not grant privileges...they impose responsibilities. It's the responsibility of the more maneuverable vessel to stay clear of the less maneuverable vessel. Clearly both vessels were under way...just look at the wake of the Ady Gil. The fact that Bethune put his "sports car like" trimaran in the vicinity of a huge cumbersome fishing vessel, and can't manage to stay out of the way ???

What're you sayin'? You are no longer a Sea Shepherd devotee...just because they let the Japanese run them over? Are you 'Turning Japanese'?...(So Sorry)...I say we blame the Japanese for this! Those look like Samurai sword wounds to ME!

Sorry Soutie...My first reply no longer made any sense after 'someone' eliminated your -1 rating. Can't have that, can we? So I restored it. I feel like I had that right...after all the drudgery of troll droppings cleanup/restoration with +1's I did on your profile page.=)

How special! Spongerdudette doesn't give -1's to just anyone these days. Dudette...I am about to start my half of the restoration of Scoob Diddley's page to pre-troll normalcy...unless you tell me NOT to.=)

Looks more like a sperm whale, teeth on thin lower jaw. Humpback whales have baleen plates. I just know, I come from...Wales (boom-tish!)
