Boston Boat Owner: Give Cash to Victims, Not Me
Newser ^ | Rob Quinn,

Posted on 04/24/2013 8:32:44 AM PDT by Morgana

(Newser) – The Watertown man whose boat was destroyed after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found hiding in it is touched that people are raising funds to buy him a new one—but he wants them to save their money for bomb victims. "It makes me feel wonderful that people are thinking like that," but "I don't want that really," Dave Henneberry tells WCVB. "I would wish that they donate it to the One Fund Boston. They lost limbs. I lost a boat."

Henneberry says his obsession with the boat, Slip Away II, led him to inspect it when the "shelter-in-place" order was lifted during the manhunt. He says that after he climbed a ladder and spotted Tsarnaev, "I didn't waste any time. I didn't ask him if he wanted a cup of coffee. I was off that ladder. That is all I remember" before calling 911. The boat is now a blood-stained, bullet-riddled mess—and police evidence. "Slip Away is slipping away. But I say it did its job," he says. "It held a bad guy and is going away like a Viking ship." (Meanwhile, Tsarnaev has opened up about the motivation for the attacks.)

Some museum will want it, watch someone just buy him one just because, or the brand it was gives him a new one. I think every freeper here would love to have a cold beer with this guy....

The second happiest day in a boat owner’s life is when he buys his first boat. The happiest day is when he sells it.

If it were me I’d drag it to where the bomb when off and call the news people and tell every one to drop off money donations for the victims till the boat was over flowing. That would get back at the muzzies and bring in donations by the millions.

I saw him in an interview yesterday and he said they lost their lives and their limbs and he just lost a boat. He had to stop talking because he was about to cry. He is a special guy.

He said the worst thing was they were asleep in their house while the bomber was in their boat a short distance from them. I would bet he goes through the paperwork to buy a gun. He had no defense when he found that guy in the boat.

Wish he would out it on EBay and give the proceeds to the victims. Bet it would sell for a lot of money.

I am sure his Homeowner policy will cover it, but he may have a seperate policy on the boat itself. The Insurer will get reimbursed by the cities/agencies responsible for filling it full of bullet holes. Even if their is not insurance coverage, he will get reimbursed at fair market value.

Unless this guy is an idiot he could make huge bucks with the boat. When the boat is released by the authorities , this cheescake factory will be worth a lot of riyals.

Dave Henneberry ... now this is the face of Boston Strong!

If he hadn't gone out for a smoke (is that still allowed in 'menino's city'?) and check on his boat, who knows how long the manhunt would have continued.

There are times when one’s faith in humanity is restored. This is one of them.

Mr. Henneberry is a fine man and a model American. Good will come back to him, probably double what he’s done.

If he hadn't gone out for a smoke ...

The original reporting was that he went out for a smoke. That has morphed into "he went out to get some air".

It's just not politically correct to admit that any US citizens smoke cigarettes. The news biz won't report it.

Not to pop an illusion, but it's not a joke.

A chief engineer on one of my ships was vacillating about buying a rather large boat but but worried about how long it would take when it came to sell. I told him to buy the boat and put it right back on the market and use it till it sold.

Next time a city locks down when looking for a terrorist we should all immedietly go outside. When authorities challenge you, say you were just out for a smoke.

As a boat owner, I know I'd offer him to boat on ours!! I might start a fund raiser to buy him a new boat!!

He is NOT going to get off for this reason. The most they can do is have his comments made during this period ruled inadmissible. It appears highly likely there is a great deal more other evidence than necessary to convict him. We don't need a confession.

Terrorism by the police? They are the ones tossing in the grenades and shooting the crap out of the hull, even with all that they still missed Tsarnaev...

Being marandized has nothing to do with confessions.

One of the first questions from a reporter after his capture was if he had been marandized and it has come up several times since...If you don't think one or more lawyers represnting him isn't going to make that an issue you are way too naive.
