Sloop and Yacht?[edit]

In two places his boat Lionheart is referenced to. In one it says sloop and in the other it says yacht, hence the title. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:21, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

It appears to have been predominantly referred to as a yacht in the news search I did, such as in this New York Times article. I've updated the article to correct the discrepancy accordingly. --Jezebel'sPonyoshhh 16:38, 20 November 2009 (UTC)
A sailing vessel can be both a sloop (a fore-and-aft rigged sailing vessel with one mast) and a yacht (a non-commercial vessel (usually) longer than 25 feet). --SV Resolution(Talk) 20:17, 13 June 2010 (UTC)


The article has two birthplaces in the first section —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:13, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

German Wikipedia says: Dachau, not Munich. (talk) 16:32, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

  • What appears on other Wikipedia's is irrelevant if not supported by a reliable source. That being said, I found an interview where Martin himself states he was born in Dachau, so I've updated it.--Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 20:01, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

Please either expand upon or omit the Personal life section. It's somewhat demeaning to insinuate that the only event worth mentioning in someone's personal life is a car accident. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:24, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Does the current version address your concerns? The changes I made can be found in this dif --Jezebel'sPonyobons mots 18:36, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Question of German citizenship[edit]

According to the website of the German Federal Foreign Office --

Children born in Germany to foreign parents may acquire German nationality if certain conditions are met. They must however decide between the ages of 18 and 23 whether to retain their German nationality or the nationality of their parents.

Martin was born in Munich, to foreign parents, so he would have had to decide if he wanted the German nationality. Also, he would have probably had to renounce his Australian citizenship at the time. It's not like in New Zealand, where birth trumps everything, and you are a New Zealander, whether you like it or not, if you were born there. --Skol fir (talk) 16:48, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
