I find it pretty difficult to imagine that a ship's owner who ordered his captain to sail into a hurricane, would ever be in a position within the TSC to ensure that a captain who refused to do so, would "Never be able to find work again" within said community... Seriously?

Dream on...




Well, you're probably better just sticking with your professed reluctance to speculate... (grin)

We saw this in the wake of the loss of RULE 62, as well...

Anyone who ever thought that the owner, or any one representing him, was likely to weigh in here to clarify whatever questions we had, was delusional...

Yes seriously John. Youve been sailing by yourself on those boats in the cold to much. In the real world blacklisting happens all the time. Ever heard of whistleblower laws

Anywho I was responding about the facts will come out in the inquery. No more speculating...even if asked to
