If the Professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

And where did they get all the clothes from?

It was a THREE hour trip, right?

Some people REALLY overpack.

Maybe they were dropping off mr. and mrs. howell and ginger somewhere.... and they needed clothes. Or maybe they wet themselves often enought to plan for it...

Just because the " Professor " was smart does not mean he understands boat engineering. I mean think about it folks, the skipper and gilligan have a better chance patching that whole with a pair of the skippers draws. Or making a sail for a canoe of somthing that could get them off that damned island. Ya know they should have taken all the men off the island and then gave me a heading and I would have sailed over there to " Take " care of the womens over there. I mean three guys ranging from 54 to 34 caint really " Get er done! " I will willingly swin the three hours ta have three chicks that need some drugstore luvin!

very simple, HE A Quack he is crazy!!! and that raido was probly the same radio from the boat and he cover it up with coconut shells and said there i did it, then the reason they can't patch a whole in the boat was cuz that professor keep stealing every part they need to make his coconut stuff!

also the skipper and gilligan was really con artists who was going to steal all those ppl money and dump them in the ocean. i mean how else would ya get a movie star, and two rich old married couple on a crappy ass boat?

as for marry ann, well i guess she was in it too that "farmers daughter" look tells it all what she wanted to do to everyone

also it's a myster that can't be solved yeah that's it =]
anyone see the movie?

There's a Gilligan movie?

And that's interesting, I never actually considered that it could all have been a conspiracy..

Adds new layers.

Not a single luxury.

Good points, all.

I think it would have been funny if they had gone all Lord of the Flies style, clan-warfare uber drama. You know living on an isolated island like that would have to drive at least one of them insane.

Re: Not a single luxury.

Oooh! I really like that.

What an awesome indie film concept.

You should do it!

I'll be Maryanne..

Or Ginger.

I do have ginger hair.

Heh, I always thought about that whole 'patching up the boat' and 'where the hell did they get all that shit in their huts? where'd the clothes come from?' and such. But really, the boat did sort've sink into the water. I think. So they couldn't really get it back. But c'mon. Surviving like, 20 years on coconuts and water? I think not.

I know. And how did they have enough water and coconuts to feed the crew too? I mean there had to have been a lot of grips and set designers...

All this post did was remind me of that Gilligan's Island reality show -- right here.

Have you ever seen that? :( I could hardly stand it for some reason.

Also, about your questions, maybe it was a conspiracy and the Professor wanted to keep them on the island.

But why?

Hmm.. maybe his real name was Dr. Moreau?

Or Doctor Jekyll?

They kinda adressed it. Mr Howel and his wife Lovey totally overpacked. They actually brought multiple steamer trunks full of clothes and money. Ginger brought a suitcase with a "few" outfits, although the few bacame quite a few when over the years she occasionally brought out clothes from her stash for her and MaryAnn to wear numbered in the hundreds. Everyone else wore just abou one outfit the whole time, though they each occasionally "found" other clothes to wear. Many could conceivably been retailored Howel clothing, others were hanging on the tree that bloomed shampoo, soap, combs, and toothbrushes.

yeah lets not forget all those ppl who wash up on shore, Who never stayed cuz the crew always gave up the way to go back to that guest in hope someo one would tell the world they was around and the near by island was some man eating clan.Although the profussor probly kill them before they left and use their way of escape to go get more tools to make more coconuts machines. why did he do it? easy cuz he knew in the real world they was looking for him for experiments gone wrong! and dont they wait 7 years before they wipe your record forever? then finally when he thought it was safe he let them off the island! (ie the movie) It was like 20 years before they got recused in the movie then he found out that everything he wanted to was already (watch the movie and it will fit in ) hehe
yeah someone stop me plz
