Getting back to his roots - I like that. hopefully he didn't die in the freezing water this time.

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago

I would just assume I actually died and Leo was God and his yacht was heaven

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

Certainly understandable with all the young maidens about.

I'm assuming DiCaprio did not hear the call and move in to rescue, but rather the captain of the vessel owned by DiCaprio performed these duties as required by maritime law.

Somewhere there's a joke about him freezing in the water to save someone else. I can't see it yet, but it's out there.

EDIT: Disregard that, I found them. Aye there be many in these seas, aharr

Setting the meme of this aside, it's nice that he didn't just report it and fuck off.

I'm curious how marine emergency calls work. Maybe I'll look into it. Either way, it's nice that it happened.

[-] [email protected] 26 points 1 month ago

Afaik you have to respond if you're the closest vessel.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 1 month ago

So I need a dingy and the marine traffic app and to have an "accident" while a certain vessel would be imposed to save me? Then I get to do some yachting and chumming it up with gilbert grape and some <25 year old babes?

You have to do something really stupid though in order for them to take it seriously, like claim you're going to cross the Atlantic on a pool float, level of stupid.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Yeah? Who enforces that? What happens if you just pretend you didn't see the distress call? Has anyone ever had real consequences from doing this?

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

I mean I doubt it. But if you're in the ocean you probably have more of an incentive to keep that going since it could be your ass pretty easily.

But I imagine big enough vessels are tracked by coast guards in lots of areas.

Well don't they know where everyone is with radar so presumably they know you were the closest boat. You could claim that you didn't hear the distress call but then questions start to get asked about why you were out with a non-functional radio? It's probably illegal to have non-functional safety equipment.

I guess it's possible but it's not really worth it. I don't think anyone expects you to put your life in danger so if you turn up to a boat and it's on fire or something i don't think anyone would expect you to take action then.

My radio started acting up after we left port and failed overnight while on the water.... What do I do.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

Go back to port if theres no emergency, otherwise use your emergency rescue beacon or backup radio.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 1 month ago

But I'm already a day out and a day away. So ....

Rolling a 20 on your luck throw

[-] [email protected] 26 points 1 month ago

as he quickly tossed him back since he wasn't a 20 year old woman

[-] [email protected] 7 points 1 month ago

How dare you come up with that joke an hour before me!

[-] [email protected] 10 points 1 month ago

The joke is already too old for Leo.

[-] [email protected] 14 points 1 month ago

Why was DiCaprio on that man's yacht

Hold my anchor, I'm going in!

Hello future people

[-] [email protected] 9 points 1 month ago

Then he invited him aboard the yacht and threw lobsters at him while looking suave.

[-] [email protected] 22 points 1 month ago

Just throws you a wooden door and slips below the waves.
