Huggy Macarthur's latest videos

Postby Telo » Sun Jan 25, 2009 3:33 pm

are here, mainly about his solo passage from Sardinia to Stromboli. He's stopped smoking, isn't swearing too much, and still very funny.

He has provoked a wonderful response on YBW, the milk of human kindness in full flow - "please donate some cash so that I can avoid getting my &rse into gear and finding a proper job ............ wonder if he's signed on and taking my tax money ....... with a bit of luck the ozzies will turn him right around and kick him out."

However it seems that his supporters outweigh the miserable gits on that forum.

Indeed, although he seems to have started smoking again now.

Pay no attention to the small-minded, Huggy.

I've never understood the problem, to be honest. Yes the language is ripe, and he could do with more cash, but that covers many afloat.....

I think it's funny, and educational. It's also brave, and I think there are many, many who watch him, wishing it was them. Myself for one.

. . . and many who know they could afford it ten timers easier than Huggy but don't have the cojones. They are the bitter and twisted posters mentioned previously who can't see Huggy as a modern hero for the impoverished dreamer with a small boat.
So - hooray for Huggy, and also for BlueMoment and its more enlightened membership :band
