Re: Fraud on the hook

What they did was out and out piracy/theft there was no possible way to have gotten a signed salvage contract with the Otts and to do the breaker bit they would have had to first salvaged the vessel and gotten a release from a maritime court to break the vessel to recoupe expenses incurred during the salvage operation. There are specific maritime laws concerning that. However I doubt anyone will do anything for this perticular incident. I do however feel that the crew of the fata Morgana will not be welcome into any anchorage where their exploits are known. I would be afraid to leave to reprovisision for fear of them " salvaging my vessel as well"
