BULLET PROOF VESTS AND GLOATING ECO TERRORISTS

UPDATE : we stand corrected - apparently the vests are not bullet proof vests but some type of floatation device.
Thanks for the correction.. BB



Wonders never cease... All the cry baby howling of the protesters will fall on deaf ears after people see this vid shot from the Ady Gil in the last moments before she got her snozzer ripped off.

Seems that the eco terrorists complete with bullet proof vests , were gloating about how much grief they had given the whalers. Then the whaling ship comes up gives them a blast with the water cannons and instead of getting the hell out of the way they get crunched. It is for them to get out of the way. They didn't and it showed bad seamanship at the very least. The skipper of the vessel put his crew in danger.

And as we suspected the reason the Ady Gil was cut loose was towing her would have used up way to much fuel and if you listen to the conversation about fuel - you will see that it is a very important factor in the cat and mouse game they were playing.

I see a bunch of people in a boat doddering along at low speed minding their own business, until some crazed munter points his ship at them and rams them.

I can never quite decide whether you are a first class wind up merchant or a first class idiot Milt.

Once again, with a comment like that, the jury remains out!

Wonders when that nasty sick freak psycho is getting his cataracts dealt with? He can't SEE the bullet proof vests?
What planet is the dumb shit living on?

The only crazed munter there is the one doing the mouthing on the video.

I see that too. But I also see a crew gloating at how much fear they put on the Japanese crew with their antics.. even to the extent of miming how the Japs were acting like old women.

I see the vehemently anti Sea Shepard crowd have moved away from offering reasoned arguments and on to Ad hominems.

I think that's Bethune yelling "whoa whoa whoa" as his shitbox throttles up, and he realizes its turned pear shaped.

"Glen Inwood: It's clear that the regulations state that a vessel which has another vessel on the starboard side shall move out of the way to avoid a collision..." (Monday 23 Jan, 2006 ABC radio). The question, Glen, is do you stand by those same words today?

Are you sure they are bulletproof vests? Wouldn't they more likely be lifejackets? I would've thought a bulletproof vest would be a liability in an environment like that, it would weigh you down in the water and make you sink should you fall in.

I'm not a huge fan of Sea Shepherd, particulary in this instance, but they aren't wearing bullet proof vests.

They are wearing life jackets made by 'Jet Pilot' for jet ski racing. The appear reinforced as they are made to withstand similar impacts to Motorcross. You can check out similar vests on the Jet Pilot website http://catalog.jetpilot.com/productsByCat.html?catID=46.

I used to race Jet Ski's and wore similar gear.

I think wearing body armour would be a little ballsy on that boat even for this lot. You'd go straight to the bottom if you went overboard.

1. As has already been pointed out, they're extremely unlikely to be wearing bulletproof vests.

2. Given that what the crew is wearing is of not even the slightest relevance to the issue, why would I refer to it? The fact that Busted Blonde is now clutching at straws to try and make Sea Shepherd look sinister isn't my problem.

3. What would the wearing of bulletproof vests tell us, other than that the Ady Gil crew feared the whalers may use firearms against them?

JC: yes. I almost get the feeling that the Sea Shepherd people actually don't like whalers very much...

Loving your work on this saga.

Head over to south Park’s Whale Wores episode: http://www.xepisodes.com/episodes/1311/Whale-Whores.html

The episode likens Sea Shepherd to a publicity seeking reality show, gets stuck into Paul Watson with some very pertinent cutting remarks and rams home the selective morality debate about the foods we choose to harvest.

I remember the little poems we learnt at Nautical school to instill the 'rules of the road' in us.

The appropriate one for here is:

If you see Sea Shepherd in front, then 'full ahead both' and ram the *#^t!
These swashbuckling yobbos were to busy high fiving each other to notice they were putting their vessel in harm's way. The master was too busy lounging and yapping to give a conning order beyond "whoa whoa whoa" when the coxwain fed her the herbs right under the Japs stem.

Should issue this clown the JFK Avoidable Collision Medal. --Kennedy fed his PT-109 into the mincer when he got rammed by a slower less manouverable Japanese freighter in the Solomons.

And give sencho-san on the Rammo Maru another sake. Well done that man!
