Thank you for anything you can do. Observers are some of the best people I've ever associated with as a group and to think of the loss to their families shakes me.

And people don't disappear, they die slowly by drowning following torture. I guess it's a pirate thing.

Usually, things work fine on these trips. At the end of mine, I make a video and give the crewmen on the fishing boat a CD of the trip and that makes friends but, if the word is out, over you go.

I know anyone who cares for the planet is on our side but since we work all alone we rarely get to feel the love.Thanks for the coverage.
