PATHETIC ATTEMPT


Now that the Japanese have announced that the Japanese Whaling Fleet will cease operations for this season 2010 - 2011 what will the SSCS do? It seems try to foment trouble where none exists since there is no purpose for their continued existence. However those TV cameras must roll taping mostly absolute rubbish about the cult leader and his motley crews.

The latest is contacting the Government of Chile to report the presence of the JWF. In our Post PIRACY - HOA AND ? we wrote about the capabilities of the Armada de Chile. It would seem from the SSCS PR today that they took that post to heart. Taking it upon themselves they claim to have contacted the Chilean Cancilleria to report the nautical position of themselves and the JWF. Why? NAUTICAL LOG has no idea but it is claimed that in the event that the JWF enters Chile's EEZ they will know about it. Such arrogance is simply beyond belief, does the SSCS seriously think that to know what is going on in their country the Chilean Cancilleria and the Armada de Chile need this pathetic group of nautical misfits to inform them.

At present both groups are south of Chile's EEZ and under the watchful eyes of satillite tracking and maritime patrol overflights. In the above chart courtesy of the Armada de Chile their area of responsibility can be seen.

The logic of these SSCS troublemakers is somewhat of a mystery to NAUTICAL LOG as the JWF having ceased whaling operations and will soon turn northwards for the Islands of Japan. In the meantime they are entitled to sail freely in International Waters and not be harassed by this pathetic band of nautical misfits who have no further purpose in nautical life. SSCS call it a day and just go home before you get into real trouble.

Good Watch.

PERIGEAN SPRING TIDES

It sometimes happens that one is going to write a Post on a subject when lo and behold there is already an excellent one.  Such is the case today; so rather than repeat everything let me refer you to the source of that Post

At present we are experiencing Perigean Spring Tides which occur when the Moon is at perigee on its oval path that is the closest point to Earth.  One of the principal results are higher than usual Spring Tides as against the Neap Tides.

Should you be interested in the full explanation of this phenomenon then you might like to reference "Old Salt Blog" which has an excellent explanation of this event and uses all the correct terms - quite unlike our Media here in South Florida.

SS EL FARO VDR TRANSCRIPT

NAUTICAL LOG has published Posts about this tragic ship sinking since the very first report of her loss.  Today the NTSB has released her VDR data in particular the Navigation Bridge voice recorder - it is not good.  This Post is compiled from multiple Media sources.

On October 01, 2015 the SS El Faro a freighter sank with all hands, 33 crewmembers lost their lives and no bodies were ever recovered though one was sighted by the USCG in a survival suit but not picked-up.  By an extraordinary search, resumed at the insistence of a U.S. Senator from the State of Florida, the VDR was found  and now after months of investigation some results have been released. 

The ship left Jacksonville, Fl. bound for San Juan, PR and sailed directly into the eye of a Category 4 hurricane named Joaquin.  Why the ship was where it was in the first place is a question yet to be fully answered but it seems that the Master was more focused on fuel consumption than plotting the path of the hurricane Joaquin an…

QUO VADIS SSS OCEAN WARRIOR ?

NAUTICAL LOG understood that the Sea Shepherd vessel Ocean Warrior had sailed for the Southern Ocean however we have seen no news of her passage southwards.  Since she is a new vessel and in waters which are renowned for storms building up quite rapidly we wonder if all is well.  One suspects that is not due to the rampant publication of events by the SSS people on every occasion that they accomplish even the slightest act which they consider positive to their aims.

Marine Traffic status:  43° 37'45 S.  147° 25' E.  course 257° @ 11 knots.  This position is south of Tasmania, Australia.

So it would be nice to know if Operation Nemesis is underway or has already become an SSS nemesis.  Continued safe passage and
