The sea Shepard’s cause is a noble one in my humble opinion.
Watson is a great Eco terrorist but he is no Captain.
I think they have raised the bar a little in recruiting some professionals but green female “Bosuns” should not be allowed to tie the knot for the prop fouler if it is going to be a clove hitch instead of a slip knot.
She likes being called a Bosun but she almost got them all killed because she didn’t know how to tie a proper knot and did not have a proper line knife (serrated and sharp enough to shave grizzly Adams) at the ready.
Same goes for the so called “professional diver”.
Now they are not just pissing off professional sailors with their stupidity.
I am a former commercial diver and if i was going to the Antarctic with my gear I would probably pack my Viking Vulcanized Rubber Dry Suit with the air tight DRY SUIT GLOVES and also a DRY SUIT HOOD.
And instead of using a knife from the galley I would probably use my serrated blade line knife that I have cut countless lines out of wheels with in less than half the time that guy spent freezing his ass off and almost getting knocked out by the boat.
The fuel had no dye in it so that is why it looked like water to the layman.
I highly doubt that BO stinking, dread locked hippies that eat a “Vegan” diet are going to pump dirty bilge overboard in the very seas they are risking their lives to protect.
Where do you think they pump their used oil after a PM? I am sure if the bilge became too high or explosive they pumped it into a slop tank for proper disposal in Aussie.
If you don’t want to get singled out as a green man on my boat you call them “deck plates”.
Watson had a good point when he talked about how many species are predicted to be extinct by the year 2060 was it?
Their cause is a noble one and they are making a difference. I am sure the Japs are having to eat contaminated dolphin meat that is being passed off as whale meat after this last season.
Don’t believe me?
Download and watch the documentary “The Cove”.
Respond to this post only after you have watched that. Still got a taste for Jap whale meat? I’ll pass thanks.
How the hell do they eat that shit anyway? I have tried it and it tastes like you are eating the asshole out of a two week old, greasy dead salmon someone found floating in a creek.
I am waiting to get high speed access so I can download and watch the remaining episodes of that season (season 4 i think?)
I too am glued to the tube when that show is on. I can’t help myself. It is kind of like watching “Deadliest Catch”. I spend months at a time living it and when i am home i have to watch it on TV.
Like we don’t get enough boat drama out here. I must be sick.
