Do you mind me asking about your why you had to be evacuated? Perfectly fine if you don't wish to discuss it.

Thanks for your help.
The participating vessels in AMVER are large ships on crossings. They will come to your assistance. You cannot contact them, the RCC does that part.

I was not evacuated. One of my crew had some prostate issues and was unable to catheterize himself.

I have posted the videos before.
