WDT: A Few More Details Surface in Story of Grounded Boat


       Some additional details are out on the strange case of Andrew Bunn, who says he is from Chicago and is a retired Marine traveling the waterways of the Northeast in his 36 foot sailboat.
       The boat was dashed on the rocks of Cherry Island near Chaumont in August and freed this week with the help of kind and generous locals including excavator WD Bach of Clayton.
       Read this account and see if it all makes sense, but whatever.....His boat is afloat and he says he is seeking work in the area.

I think the questions raised on this blog are just the start of some revelations. He mentioned people stealing from him. I'm not even sure how someone could get out there to do so. Maybe Dannie can take him in. They can hold hands while going to the PX together.

Retired at 36? More likely a Medical Retirement than a longevity retirement, if he was in and out of the Marines in 4 years. Which, these days, is a kind way of saying "you're fired" for not being able to perform the job. Of course, lots of folks like to inflate their time in the service with the word 'retired' (and media is usually too lazy to know the difference), even if they only did one stint and got out. Of course, it's lazy writing to indicate he's retired from 2 jobs (RN and Marines) if you aren't truly 'retired'.
Needless to say, if he can afford to tarvel the northeast by boat, he should have enough coin so that he doesn't need people to scam on his behalf via GoFundMe.
Hope he has his NYS teaching certificate if he's looking for work.

Retired in his 30's. Drives a nice boat. It is reported here that his wife is dead from drugs. He was a nurse and that reminds us of the obvious that nurses have access to drugs. His daughter lost her mother but that doesn't keep him home with her, instead he wants to ride around in his sail boat.

Not impressed.
