If the sea is so choppy that the big fuck off boat is in trouble what good is a tiny little lifeboat?
They don’t tend to use lifeboats just cause its a bit windy
A thread which looks good to start but completely falls apart when given any thought. Community Mould
Retracted my like
And what’s the deal with seatbelts in aeroplanes?
But who rescues the rescuers
“Oh shit, we’re in the middle of this massive fucking storm and the colossal bastard ship made of metal that I’m in is in danger of going down, thank God I’ve got this pathetic wooden shit-tub that I have to row with oars or I’d really be in trouble”
(I really like “Community Mould” though fwiw, would love to see a thread on that topic)
I think old school lifeboats were more like “Our floaty wooden thing has hit a rock and has a hole in it, good thing we’ve got a back-up floaty wooden thing.”
And newer lifeboats are probably built to be more stable?
You’ve immediately proved yourself to have way more knowledge and insight than me on this topic but unfortunately I am also very stubborn so I don’t think we’re going to align on this I’m afraid
They’re like normal boats I think but for twats.
think they are to stop you from drowning
Just normal boats
That’s enough of this now anyway, I need to get back to watching The Life of Pi (2012)
Lifeboats are brilliant you ignorant clod.
Really been getting into watching saving lives at sea in the afternoons lately. Also that programme about that cheerful bloke with his team of divers that every week say the same thing: I like diving. I like going to the gym and I don’t want my air hose to get caught in this propellor.
Yeah I like Saving Lives at Sea
One thing I’ve learnt from watching Our Flag Means Death is that you can actually row a boat across the ocean with relative ease in a very short amount of time. There’s a reason you only see surfers at the coast, there simply are not waves out at sea. It’s just like a big old lake.
To clarify, I’m not talking about the RNLI or what have you who are amazing (although I wish they’d stop sending my stuff in the post tbh) - I’m talking about the ones that if you’re on a big boat, they have little boats on it in case the big boat sinks.
