AND THE DEVIL LAUGHED

So once again it has happened this time in Manchester, England.  Manchester that solid working class city, now the second city of England, the evil losers have struck with an explosive device. 

NAUTICAL LOG remembers it some 60 years ago British people with a very distinctive accent and expressions.  That of course has changed considerably with the influx of persons from former British Empire countries such as India, Pakistan, Ceylon and the West Indies.  Add in numerous others due to the European Union with its unwise indeed foolish "open borders" policy.  What has resulted is no doubt something NAUTICAL LOG would not recognize from 60 years ago.  Yet when push came to shove and this tragic disaster occurred after a pop princess's concert the working class spirit of Manchester came into action with exemplary behavior of hotels and residents opening theirs doors and hearts to help with shelter, food and communications.  There were videos of heavily armed Police Officers with arms around terrified young children, the pop princess's principal fans, comforting them and keeping them  safe from further harm. 

Sadly though this was after the initial incident.

There were TV interviews where persons said that concert security ranged from non-existent to casual and relaxed which seems strange even extraordinary. You see it now turns out that the person who set off the IED was well known to the British and European counter-terrorism authorities.  Warrents have already been executed, his father and brothers have been arrested with the cooperation of Libya by those same British Authorities, others are being searched for.  One has to wonder how easily this evil loser planted and exploded the IED in a public space between the Victoria Street train station and the Manchester Evening News Arena.  One has to question could it have been prevented?  No doubt someone will have to explain all this and no doubt disciplinary action will take place within the British Law Enforcement Authorities involved - it is already being discussed by British media outlets.

So sadly therefore the evil loser who clearly targeted the young persons leaving the concert was successful as others all over Europe and America have also been to date.

So the evil loser having been killed by his own IED presented himself for his reward as he had been told he'd receive,

And the devil laughed.

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.

Good Watch.

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
