    Captain "2D In-And-Out Int"

    Meat Body son was "2D not-quite-in Int"

    Then Captain "2D to 2nd-in-C"

    Y / N ?

    Captain married Japanese woman from IAS, no major position. CMO devised it that way as a marriage of convenience. The thing is he's the only person who can sail the ship so he is untouchable hence getting of by having a relationship with a person outside the cult.

    Jacuzzi on the right side of photo is on and water is bubbling (see higher-res 1.8 MB original photo here). But no one around. Jacuzzi on left side is off.

    I like how the Freewinds is always photographed moored on crappy little out of the way jetties that don't have proper facilities. The nearby vessels are usually cargo ships. (Is this because the Cult is prepared to pay only minimal mooring fees?) That might also explain why they discharge their sewage straight into the sea.

    Midget Miscavige has some expensive toys, but he still thinks small, and he's a cheapskate. Downstat is inevitable.

    Last photo posted was the back side of the Freewinds. Here is the front side, right next to lots of cargo containers. Same photographer, same day.

    Sure looks like a lot of garbage on board the Freewinds. March 17, 2009 in Cartagena, Colombia.

    Freewinds anchored off Cartagena, Colombia on April 17, 2009. Year old picture was just uploaded a couple days ago.

    Why is Freewinds anchored out at sea, and not anchored in port?

    I can see persons on board, some wearing Sea Org white and some wearing grey (RPF?)

    Garbage barge and small skiff tied to the Freewinds.

    Why is 1 lifeboat getting lowered?

    Lots of stuff piled up and covered up on upper decks, assorted stuff laying around on decks

    IIRC, Freewinds is scheduled to leave Cartagena, Colombia tomorrow, and go to Santa Marta, Colombia.

    I am very much tied up recently, managed to get an internet connection today, but I will be mostly off the grid for a while. Anyone interested in following up on tracking the Freewinds?

    Some photos of Freewinds in Bridgetown, Barbados, taken on 2010-05-08. Photos were just uploaded today.

    First one is a nice shot of Sea Orgers on their knees cleaning the deck. Much higher res photos in the links.

    Got it from reliable source that Failwinds often near-empty outside of "Anniversary Event" time - as few as 30 passengers at times.

    And it's been like that for years.

    It's been bleeding money for years and it's costing more each year that goes by.

    But Davey can't sell it as it's the only ship in his navy. And the clams would notice.

    It's only real use seems to be a place to dump RPFers where they have almost no chance of escape.

    The only thing that would have been worse than finding asbestos is if it were radioactive.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to totally get rid of all the asbestos?

    Doesn't the cult's "cruise ship" look puny, when compared to a proper, modern one?

    For example:
    [IMG]

    Freewinds is a converted ferry. It had an expensive refit, but at the end of the day, it's not a luxurious way to travel... even if you weren't surrounded by brainburned cultists, a "cruise" aboard the Freewinds would be fucking grim.

    This old guy has Freewinds shirt on. Shirt looks like it's made out of that old polyester material that does not breathe. Tacky design: Freewinds at night complete with stars and moon. Sorry for horrible pictures because they were only one vehicle away so I took pic through window.

    Buying up idle orgs is defeating the object, creating too much costly land "mass" for what should be a sea faring organisation. Miscavige should commission the building of a proper modern cruise liner fleet, say three vessels.

    If he did that it would show the world just how awesome the church of scientology is and it would provide a platinum standard environment for people to go clear and OT in and that would solve all of the organisation's current problems. Also far more countries would want them to turn up, let's face it most countries find the Failwinds an embarrassment to have in port these days.

    With all the thousands of people flocking and paying thousands to get on the 3 vessels they will pay for themselves in months; heck each one could process 1000 people a month at around $10,000 a person, that's $30,000,000 a month.

    If you're reading this David Miscavige this is what you should do. When it all crumbles in to dust don't say I didn't give you the hint of a chance....

    Hahahahahaha. 2 photos in post # 87 showing Sea Ogres got yanked from the internet. So here they are again, in original uncompressed version. (The pics I posted earlier were compressed.)

    Glad I snagged these pics before they were yanked.

    Old asbestos laden scow should have been scrapped a few years back imho. The only thing I can think of is that DM procures funds to 'reno' it, probably millions, but goes to his fav drug port and gets things done for 5cents on the dollar.
    You'd think with a billion or so stashed around the globe that the cheap bastard could spring for 30mil and get a decent ship, but noooooooooooo, gots ta keep the floating shit-spewer alive, hm, just like reprinting Hubbard's books...

    Also, from the same photo set, from January 2010, it appears that these are the people who attended the "Competence and Leadership Convention" on board the Freewinds.

    Re: Photos of empty Freewinds - March 2010

    I can't remember where I found this photo, on Picassa Web Albums I think.
    And the date is April 2010, I believe.

    Pool's drained :D

    img0308p.jpg

    Pool's drained and closed, but Freewinds isn't empty.
    I count at least 9 people (same photo, cropped, enlarged and enhanced)

    OK, these are some of the strangest photos I've seen on the Freewinds.

    Dining Room. Are these mashed potatoes with eyes supposed to be BTs?
    Why does this lady have a [STRIKE]goatse[/STRIKE] sun drawn on her forehead?
    What's up with the really tall napkins in the glasses?

    I think the trend of emptying out will afflict the Failwinds hereafter. Bear in mind that the scientology crime syndicate targets those countries where people few read the english language, as most information about the syndicate exists in English on the internet, books, and magazines.

    I don't think that even the worst inside cabins on modern cruise ships have bunk beds.

    And real cruise ships look more like this:

    The people who would pay the price of a cruise ship suite and be happy with one of those Freewinds boxes, would probably think that Camelot Castle really was a five star hotel.

    Shrink that Taiwan base and I think you'd lose an important asian market.
    (Seems like Sydney connections here also).

    Where are the Taiwan exes on the boards?

    Wait! Before you eat that, here's the Count Dracula Dinner menu. Makes me reaaaally wonder about the chef. I can't decided between Human Baby Tenderloin or Waffled Cat Tongue. Makes you wonder what's in that (unnamed) dessert.

    * Gigantic Sea Roaches w/Clotted Blood
    * Cemetery Grass with Sliced Calluses & Roasted Bird Brains
    * Crispy Ogre Skin with Pus & Flea Dressing & Toasted Tripe
    * Coagulated Cow Marrow Dislay
    * Poisonous Fruit de la Condemned Forest
    * Human Baby Tenderloin with Crusted Blood and Mud
    * Broiled Scorpions a la Frog Mucus
    * Boo Taters
    * Martian Fingers and Waffled Cat Tongue

    Looks like a turd on a plate. :) Notice they go for artistic layout as oppose to quantity; to be fair a lot of restaurants do that but most real cruises provide a ton of food.
