Circumnavigation (99 +12) Coming to a Head

Recommended Posts

There will need to be personal interviews. With tan analysis.

 

Absolutely.

 

And don't forget that all three will have, at some point, to wear Joel's torn shorts so these interviews will have to be quite in-depth...

See the Title ... already a cliff hanger!!! Outrageous torcher CJames does to his loyal readers

 

I'm having internet trouble tonight (intermittent connection) so I'll reply to the above posts tomorrow. This is just a quick post to announce the name of the coming chapter, so those of you who are concerned that there is trouble ahead can rest easy;

Ok- I'm on the east coast on a business trip in NJ. - the only benefit I can think of being out here on a "turn-around" business trip is maybe, just maybe, I will get to read the Blood in that Water chapter three hours earlier.

 

Nice way to edge back from the cliffy...

Off coursevim so tired I didn't realize until later that the story posts when it posts and time zones aren't a factor like they are in broadcast TV... Oh well - heavy sigh! ;-)

Sorry I've been offline for a while and am so late replying!!

 

Usually I try to reply to every post, but I'm rather constrained regarding possible spoilers at the moment. I've also been having internet connection issues.

 

I must say, I'm shocked, absolutely shocked, that anyone could say that there was a cliffhanger!

 

One note about the coast guard cutters; asside from a few icebeakers and arctic-service cutters, their hulls are not armored. Far from it, they are quite thin. This is true for real warships as well; armored hulls basically went out after WWII (for new construction, anyway).

 

If Sea Witch hit the cutter in the side at speed, it would be a non-survivable event for both vessels. The cutter could probably survive (with heavy damage and some flooding) a head-on strike. Sea Witch isn't a small boat; she's about 1/3 the length of that cutter. The captain ordered full reverse to reduce the relative speeds (like slamming on the brakes in a car when faced with a head-on collision).
