    Default gCaptain

    I started receiving Facebook posts from an outfit called gCaptain. Appears to be mostly commercial world wide shipping news so far. Rather entertaining. I recommend. Beats pictures of people's dinners and political posts.

    Good site, though annoyingly USA!USA!USA! at times. I've been reading it daily for a couple years now.
    I'll just take my chances with those salt water joys.

    I read their forum thread on the HMS Bounty from start to finish. The first post was a link to the similar thread here. Most there don't know much about wooden boats or sail, but their knowledge of seamanship and safety at sea made it very well worth the read. I've read some other threads over there since then, some interesting ones have come up.

    Cheers,

    Bobby

    I've found the forum very informative, not one that I contribute to but worth a look at every now and then. Here's the link for anyone who's interested: http://gcaptain.com/forum/

    Thanks for adding that Larks.
    Always seeking nautical entertainment, this seemed worthwhile.

    No worries Dan, here's a bit of an example of some of the reports that I've found on there that I haven't found elsewhere (including an interesting video clip of a pirate boat being shot up)

    Mario Vittone did a series of comments on the televised Bounty Coast Guard, NTSB public hearings at gCaptain that were, IMHO, excellent.
    He also does other sea-safety articles, being a retired USCG rescue swimmer.
