Good find. So obviously the Christine Rose is non-recreational but I wonder about the others.
Unfortunately his crew is even MORE unlikable.
Gee, Justen, I'm pretty sure that a Senior Chief gave me the "less than an hour" figure. I mean, what more reliable source could there be than that?
Actually, I know there is considerable variance based on body type, physical condition, and other factors. I understand that obese people stand cold better than any other body type because they have a lot of warm "core" to keep that vital core temperature up.
I know what you mean about those boats though. No safety equipment, no rescue station nearby, no inspections, etc.
Our small boats had to have full safety gear, an inflatable raft, and two functioning outboard motors. At least one rated coxswain had to be present and everybody had to obey his orders.
Actually, I kinda get a kick out of Steve. Crazy SOB can be funny as heck.
Totally agree... the Captain on that ship is a complete a-hole.
I totally agree that the two that are living in the Yurt seem to be a horrific fit. They've talked about how they do live in there and drive each other crazy due to the close proximity to one another.
I'm rather shocked that there isn't any sorta thing between the two of them. I mean being stuck in a small tent for months??? even a guy with an abrasive attitude should have a chance!! Although he doesn't exactly seem like the type that even remotely wants a relationship.
Just about every one on this show is an idiot. I'm betting the "real" gold miners hate them, they are making them look really bad.
The guy who was standing right next to the piece that broke off, and going "I shouldn't probably stand here" was priceless. I assume he/Discovery were not so dumb to have him stand there intentionally, but it could not have been better timing. And wow, a foot shorter and he is having some serious problems for the rest of his life!
If that girl falls in the water one more time I'm canceling my SP.
I agree. I don't think she staged it for the show, but I do think she staged it so he'd have no choice but to go back in. She is something else...
Wait for it......
I we don't get the car back on the road we'll have to spend the night here and we don't have a tent or a change of clothes? You mean those heartless !@#$ in the camera car that follow you around relentlessly won't give you a ride or at least go for help? Those !@#$'s!
yeah...that was silly.
But props to them for pushing through and actually getting that jeep out of there. I was impressed from start to finish. They were standing in calf-high water the entire time.
That guy from the sluicy (not the owner but the guy who actually knows what he's doing) seems to be the brightest guy on this show.
To be fair, that's not saying too much. Most of these people seem to want to compete with the Gold Rush guys for bigger collection of morons. At lease these people are finding gold.
It's a lot easier to find gold when you just have to look at the floor to find it rather than having to move 50,000 tons of dirt to find out if there is even gold there.
I guess the OSHA mine guys (can't remember the acronym) don't have juristiction on sea vessels? Those things look like accidents waiting to happen.
Either that, or just like Gold Rush, they will all get inspected next year because of the exposure on the show.
(according to the last gold rush show, per Parker, in 25 years they were never inspected, but 1 year after the show airs they are inspected)
Going to sea in lashed together flotsam? What could possibly go wrong?
and I guess the Coast Guard doesnt either -- anybody wear life vests?
The USCG has jurisdiction over small boats such as these. But there is no USCG presence in Nome, AK. In any case, there is no proactive enforcement by the USCG, except via a completely voluntary organization (the USCG Auxilliary) which inspects private boats and offers safety tips on a voluntary basis. USCG Auxilliary is an all volunteer organization, frequently officered by the local yacht club - the uniforms of USCG Auxilliary "Captains", "Commodores", and "Admirals" have silver braids but otherwise resemble those gold-braided uniforms of real USCG officers. (USCG Auxilliary is all officers and no enlisted worker bees, and some Auxilliary uniforms are quite spectatcular custom creations.)
I'm guessing Nome, AK has no yacht club, and no USCG Auxilliary either.
Basicly if the USCG has to come out and perform Search & Rescue, after saving your life and property, they will issue citations for safety violations. Then those citations have to be cleared before the vessel's registration is again valid. Aside from that, the USCG can invalidate the licenses of the Merchant seamen in charge of the vessel.
It's frequently the case that after the USCG Search & Rescue, it's cheaper to re-flag the vessel to someplace in Africa that doesn't have such expensive regulations than it is to correct the shortcomings in equipment and crew that are called out in the USCG citation(s). I urge caution if you are booking passage or chartering a boat or even taking a ferry passage and you find out the vessel is registered to some Turd World country. That's a pretty good clue that the vessel and crew don't meet USCG standards.
yeah...he wrongly blamed the prodution crew liked they called them and had them do inspection, which wasn't the case. The "publicity" of the show made them a target which then lead to an inspection.
