Together with the MS Steve Irwin both vessels are planning to stand off Libya "protecting" the Bluefin tuna however this littoral is now a war zone declared by the EU-NATO forces. The SSCS vessels crews will have no legal war zone protection, maritime insurance and are extremely unwise indeed foolish to mann these vessels. We would suggest the French Navy places them under Admiralty Writ, remove their fuel and render the vessels inoperable. This would actually save everybody a lot of problems this tuna season and very possibly loss of life which clearly 'Wats-his-name' has little regard for with his crews.
This sad saga was compounded by another ancient mariner Captain Albert Falco (84) of the Cousteau Society being paraded. He broke a bottle of champagne, one hopes not one of Boucher Père et Fils, Champillon, France, on the bow to dedicate the new name. Mon dieu enough already!!
Please remember the seafarers held captive by pirates off Somalia - let us work with maritime interests and others to free them.
