Flatballer is on a distinguished road
On there is an interview with the "engineer". Article is called Surviving the Bounty. He had joined the ship two months ago. Captain explained at the dock what was up and said he'd understand if they wanted to bail.

Had been around small boats all his life. Received basic safety training and some instruction on climbing the rigging. I'm gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and assume he's a crack diesel and genset guy. He owns a handyman business, not exactly qualifying credentials to be in charge of big marine diesels and gensets.

No mention of the fact that maybe if they had a proper engineer the engine wouldn't have failed.
