There are never many real passengers.

If you pay money to go on for a week, say, they call you "volunteer crew".

If they take 30 Boy Scouts out the kids are crew, not passengers.

This then means they are taking many people out on an uninspected vessel.... A vessel where there may be only 3 or 4 paid crew and everyone else is unpaid or actually paying.


This matter could really blow the lid off what could be a huge safety scam.
