huh, ive sailed those waters, they never asked me to be in it.
im not sure how i feel about it, are they going to turn him into a hero? when from what ive heard from guys that have sailed with him to storys about the attack he didnt do everything right i.e. forgetting to lock the doors to the bridge so the pirates could walk right in, and using extreme rudder movemts drastically slowing the ship down. the movie should be focused more on the guys that actually fought back and won the ship back, but then again maybe it will be. and who knows, i work on the ocean, maybe everything ive heard is just a tall tale.
i do know that we were in the berth behind them in djibouti bidding on the same cargo they were that was going to kenya. they won the bid and got the cargo and we went to kuwait to back load tanks instead.
