Um, no we didn't. We considered it because all our lives were in danger. But they ended up finally realizing that we did need to use autohelm, and did it themselves. No threats were involved. (Please reread the posts, or cite whatever gave you this false impression.)
It's in the telling of the story.

Mutiny at dawn

Mutiny is the only way to survive.

If we donít take control for the boat and sail her properly, our sails will suffer more damage and water supply will become an issue.

Um, you mean when the owner tried to hit me over the hit with a winch handle? And rockDAWG deflected it?
And then proceeded to punch the guy in the nose as well as physically grabbing and pushing Jane.

But I was in a combat mode to block and struck his nose. He hesitated for a second and I grabbed and threw the handle away. Jane jumped in the midst of this for our phone, I grabbed her hands and pushed her to the starboard side of the cockpit and sat still.
Btw, and fwiw, here is, at least, one of the apparent threats.

Add to the above, that rock titled this thread "Mutiny at Dawn"? Based upon his title and telling of the story, sure reads like someone was trying to take the guy's boat over.

As for the "lives in danger" bit? I am admittedly still scratching my head on that one. Perhaps you'd be willing to elaborate what, exactly you two mean by that? Bc, frankly speaking, am just not seeing anything in the story that remotely supports such a claim.
