COOLING EXPERIENCE

Jet Ski battered by fire hoses

After weeks of sullen silence the SSCS seagoing Cult has send out a Press Release.  Once again the Chief Windbag "Wats-his-name" has risked someone else's life to do his dirty work for him.


The report states that Beck Straussner of Maui, Hawai'i who is apparently the Second Mate of the MS Steve Irwin set off  on a Jet Ski to attack the MS Yushin Maru #2.   Yes! fellow seapersons seriously a Jet Ski, can you imagine the insane person who would develop such tactics, certainly not someone fit to command a vessel operating in the Southern Ocean.


The Report further states that Second Mate BS took a hit from a MS Yushin Maru #2 defence system water hose (looks like an ordinary fire hose to NL) and ended up in the freezing Antarctic water.  He was able to swim back to the jet ski and travel nine miles to the MS Steve Irwin.


Now can any of us who have commanded vessels imagine sending a crewmember on his own to attack a fast whaling vessel on a jet ski.  Further having done that then standing off nine nautical miles from the scene.  It becomes more clear each season that "Wats-his-name" should be removed from Command by the SSCS.


Good Watch

Held hostage by pirates off the coast of Puntland, Somalia are 300 of our fellow seafarers. They are under continual threat of mutilation or death.  Just a reminder in case you actually DO care.
