    Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    tl;dr Something is fishy about Freewinds hiding during December 2010

    Freewinds has been "out of range" for 31 days, and still counting. This is very unusual.

    FREEWINDS - 6810811 - Vessel's Details and Current Position

    Commercial ships are required by international law to use AIS to transmit their positions.

    Frequently Asked Questions on AIS and Real time ship observation

    This is not meant to be a tinfoil thread. I have never seen the Freewinds out of
    tracking range for more than a month.

    Reference thread:

    http://forums.whyweprotest.net/12-active-projects/tracking-freewinds-57215/

    In my opinion, 1 or 3 things has most likely happened. There are probably
    other explanations, but I consider these 3 options to be the simplest, most
    likely explanations (Occam's razor)

    1) Freewinds has illegally turned off its AIS transmitter.

    I know scientology does not like the Freewinds to be tracked.

    2) Freewinds is out of range, in Colombia, for a month.

    Colombia is out of range for AIS transponders. However, Freewinds was
    reported to be docked in Aruba on 18 December, but not registered by AIS
    transponders.

    Aruba is unfortunately outside range of AIS transponders

    3) Scientology has successfully bribed / threatened the Marine Traffic web
    site to stop posting their information.


    Marine Traffic website has previously yanked unflattering photos of Freewinds
    from their website.

    So anyway, perhaps the mysterious OP of the Tracking of the Freewinds thread
    can shed some light on his / her opinion of this.

    No surprise, they consider themselves above the law.
    But, perhaps they have turned off the AIS tracker for more rational reasons, like to hide from the Marcabian Fleet!

    I THINK I came across the old event posters when Freewinds arrived in Taiwan a few years ago. (I thought I went into the other universe too.) The captain will be there soon. If he takes his boat they will be passing through many unfriendly waters, each of which can demand an inspection.

    It's a promotional tour by the captain, posted days ago, hoping everyone leaps onto the failboat and become OTs. I think it's one of these things that confuse with the actual arrival of the freewinds, like Flag on land, freewinds courses not on freewinds.

    Turning off a tracker is deliciously stupid. Should anything dire occur, I bet turning it back on wouldn't be high on the priority list.

    Maybe it just sank? With nobody aboard at the time?

    Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    According to the marine traffic site it now seems to be stuck midway between Curacao and Bonaire (port of origin appearing to be Aruba just looking at the track, sailing past the port of Willemstad, Curacao).
    It was in the same place when I checked yesterday.
    This same thing happened last month I believe whereby the track just stopped whilst on route to Kralendjik, Bonaire before magically appearing the next day in Curacao.

    Maybe DM has got an onboard casino going for the local bigwigs and in order to avoid local laws and taxes he has the vessel position at anchor just outside of juristiction limits ;). (or they've discovered our subsea tinfoil mine).

    Maybe they are supplying Narconon with cocaine? If you drop out they get to keep your money, and if you want to try again: that'll be another $35,000.

    Where is this quote from?

    I found reference to a Major Prado in this article.

    POLICA NACIONAL GOLPEA, DETIENE Y NIEGA DERECHO A LA DEFENSA A TRABAJADORES DE TELECOM : Indymedia Colombia

    The Bacata Police Station is in an important part of Bogota near the University of the Andes. Bogota isn't very close to Cartagena.

    Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    ...and just like last time, there is no record of the track making it al the way to Kralendjik, Bonaire before it turns right around midway and heads for Willemstad port, Curacao.
    http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shipdetails.aspx?mmsi=354993000
    Right now you can see the track starting midway between Bonaire and Curacao heading back the way it came then into Willemstad port.
    So, either it did go to Bonaire but turned off its AIS transponder illegally or it anchored up in open sea for a couple of days without drifting at all before heading back. A phonecall/email to the right person at Kralendjik, Bonaire or any webbed eyewitness reports will confirm whether or not it turned off its AIS.

    Dear All,
    ...They said the people were amazingly receptive to receiving the book and even asked for additional copies. A waitress at an outdoor cafe wanted a box of them to give to the patrons that came to the restaurant!

    Anyways the news here is unbelievable! TWTH concerts and lectures for 300 teenagers in the Starlight Cabaret just a few days ago and on and on. I could tell you even more wins. It is amazing.

    Thought you all would love to know. Pass on the good news and feel free to purchase some TWTH for the ship. The ship is daily asked for thousands of more copies and Major Prado is sooooo appreciative for what the ship has done. As a matter of fact he has written a commend for anyone who donates to the campaign. It is from the Columbian government:):)

    Love Lisa Malm


    Yes Im sure that the people were over the moon to get a box of Cult booklets. They needed a distraction from all the hot women and blow.

    Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    Would it be possible that they're dropping the hook offshore to dump their sewage? That'd be a good reason to go off-screen. If it's not illegal to dump sewage in the ocean, it ought to be.

    IT IS !

    Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    Dont know if anyone mentioned this but if Bonaire is disposing of waste, no matter where it came from, it is not the Freewinds problem. They could very well be abusing it cause it may be cheaper than for disposal than other ports but still not their problem.

    If they are directly dumping thats another issue but over international waters I dont know.

    I think BRIBERY is involved in the first case

  34. Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    I like all of your stuff.... sadly the cancer ship has never docked in US ports because of how cancerous, and polluting it is. Such a shame.... You would think the Scilons would ask about that. If the mecca is in Clearwater, why doesn't the freewinds dock there?
  35. Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    I find that offensive. The Dutch Antilles no longer exists. They formally dissolved on October 10, 2010. Bonaire, Saba, and Sint Eustatius became special municipalities of the Netherlands proper, while Curaçao and Sint Maarten joined Aruba in becoming constituent countries within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, not unlike the status of Scotland in the UK.

    WHAT ARE YOUR CRIMES!!!
  36. Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    Excellent, onley it is exist not exists as Antilles is plural.

    This means Bonaire is under direct goverence of the Dutch government !

    Maybe the Freewinds had to sneak its waste in undetected this time.

    Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    No, the dumping occurred in 2008 before dissolution of the Netherlands Antillies and the unification of Bonaire with Holland in 2010.
    The scientology crime syndicate knows very well that they could not get away with dumping their raw sewage at any port in Holland or the United States.
    That's why they never show up here, because that puts them under U.S. jurisdiction while in port.
  38. Re: Did Freewinds illegally turn off its AIS tracker?

    Hence the AIS tracker being turned of. So it could be if the same "bribed" officials on Bonaire still want some extra pocket money.
