I agree very bad choices were that will have an effect for some time. The defending themselves part is over the sentencing is next.

Wellllllll shit.
My wife and I have a trip scheduled with them on the 10th. I wonder if they can fish until the sentencing? I may have to call the landing and see if they know what's up and then file a claim with my credit card company to get my money back.

I have fished with Mark and Chris and always had a great time. Bummer to hear the news.
That would be an interesting safety seminar....in the event PVC pipes uh..... "Break"

Yes, but penalties will be totally different. I am not in anyway defending what they did, just trying to keep facts straight.
In a plea bargain, you plead guilty to one or more charges and the other charges get dropped. The prosecution makes a sentancing recommendation and the judge makes the final decision.

If you have a trip booked with Eclipse Sportfishing, I'd get a refund immediately.

Wow , it's hard to mess that up , they get the dumb ass award
You were probably the dumb ass that defended the captains. I got called names like yours for speculating the truth.

cmon Otto,
Really, lighten up Francis.
As far as the rash of sinkings lately- I usually think
1- insurance fraud first
2- human error 2nd.

I feel bad for their families..nobody knows what influences someone to do things that they do.

Humility is a good reminder and I'm sure these guys have plenty of it.

What the?
I don't know what the process or laws are for the given situation. My assumption is that the trip will be canceled but I don't like to assume. I do know their refund policy is 30 days in writing or they have to fill your spot so that is out of the question. Given the situation they probably are not even going to answer their phones to give a refund. I will more than likely have to get refunded from my credit card company.

Dude, go wash the sand out of your vagina. Nobody owes you an apology. Back when the incident happened, without any facts, you speculated (guessed) correctly. It was a 50/50 chance of being right.
That guy is a dumb ass.

Ha, good for them, greedy bitch scammers!

Chris and his wife roped me into designing their landscape for their home up on the hill in La Jolla.

I assumed I would be doing their job, so I spent a ton of time drawing up their plans and meeting with them (which I NEVER do, unless I'm paid a retainer up front).

And guess what, they had someone else do the job - and use the plans I trusted them with.

What did I get out of it? A BIG fat ZERO, not even a free ride on their (shitty) boat.

Enjoy your time in lockup and remember - karma's a bitch!
