The loss of the ship was probably the intent.
+1 -- it was probably insured well. easier to sink the mofo, than to sell.
Pretty sad state for the Bounty. I figure they'll take it "off line" soon, but the Bounty's Facebook page tells the story of their departure and "plan" to avoid, and situation as it unfolded rapidly.
My thoughts are certainly for the lost, and I hope their survival suits they apparently had on will keep them safe and get them found.

I pray they are found but know it is not going to happen.
Even I know I should have gone for a ride today with this great weather we are having.
Well I went for a ride today!
I rode both days of this past weekend!
I ran errands on my bike and voted early...so at least I got to ride. On another note the buyers bank had our our house inspected only found three minor problems that we need to fix prior to the sale. Things are going too good to be true. Knock wood.
Here is crossing body parts for your sale.

Was up in Bentonville today and saw an ARCH BK-117 landing at Mercy so went over and it was the bird from Joplin where I used to fly (not the same bird as it was destroyed in Tornado, but another ARCH bird). Pilot was one of the guys I worked with. He told me they are indeed putting Med Flight 3 at Mercy. I am torn, as it would be great to work at home again, but the pay cut, and all the down sides of EMS are giving me second thoughts on even inquiring about the job. Pay cut would probably be $20,000 but could work over plenty and never be more than 2.5 hours from home. Plus you never know when, like EagleMed did, they may just close down the base.
Will be on my mind for awhile I guess, they are looking at February and the aircraft will be the EC-130, a modified version essentially of the A-Star I flew here for EagleMed.
BTW, I did ride my bike to the gym. I was a bit cold at first but actually sweating a bit, wearing shorts no less, in upper 30's weather. I had on good gloves and a wrap around my ears, long sleeve warm jersey, and a light wind vest. On the ride home weather wasn't bad at all.
hey elvis..does your DR still run?
Heard from the insurance co yesterday. They've offered $6K for Yellaphant. I reckon I'll take 'em up on it.
I hope you can sleep with the guilt....
Of course I can. Years of practice.
Happy to hear you're OK. Go eat some deer and get some sleep.
I went back to get the deer and some redneck done stole it. :ruskie
I'll take a nap later. Shopping for new toys at the moment.
$6000 eh..you got your moneys worth out of it..how many miles didja have on it? Are they going to take it or do you get to part it out?
It has 179,604 miles on it. I paid $12K for it 11 years ago.
They're gonna take it. I'm pulling my gps of it today, and all the wiring for my heated gear. It's been a great bike, probably the most dependable vehicle I've ever owned. I seriously doubt if I find another one quite like it.
I did find an airhead GS for sale which is whispering seductively in my ear...
Rode to work under a full moon this morning. It was beautiful, but it was chilly . Coffee tastes extra good on a bracing morning.
