Anyway it is obviously that he was there because the Captain wanted, not by accident in a sense that he was not caught inadvertently by that storm. He could have stayed in Port, several of them. Is this what you mean when you say "NOT BY ACCIDENT"?


In my experience, when you want to find out why people do what they do, the FIRST place you look is at the money side of the issue, sex being a close second.
