From what I understand the only way she was able to return this year was under the command of BRC rangers. I doubt very much that she was ever speeding anywhere this year.
After the repairs it looked like she had a dpw car as a spotter for the rest of the event.

However driving at night on the open playa isnt as easy as one would expect. Since there are no landmarks or lines in a road (or a road, for that matter) its difficult to know that you are driving in a straight line or not.
I dont know all the details, but the driver didnt know the ship was heading towards the dunes in the center of the playa and tore out a good chunk of the starbord hull.
La Contessa needs to go. Its a nice boat and all, but what's the point?
Correct me if I'm wrong. I thought you couldn't picture dunes on a topo map because they move in the wind, constantly tearing themselves down and rebuilding themselves farther along.TheJudge wrote:They (the dunes) arent pictured on even the local topo maps.
Yeah, it's possible, I guess. She was known for going fast. I don't know what the capabilities of her engine were/are, however.makoona wrote: she looked to be going 60 knots, at least. Is that possible?

why do you need to talk so much shit about us? you must realize that you are speaking of 30 plus people - some of whom - myself included - are still a positive part of this structure in other ways than extra-action?
have you any idea that everytime you talk shit about us it fucking hurts?? i busted my ass working on not only la contessa, but 7 years of playing with extra-action, and that we had no intention of hurting people, and that you can't actually find anyone that was actually hurt, except for us?
