The Somali pirates have been paid $430,000 ransom for the Chandlers.
Of course they have not been released and the pirates want more.
I don't know if this news has been reported here while we have been out of contact.
Anyway it just sux!!!!!!
A) It shows you the pirates won't release people even if you pay the ransom
b) It shows you what each cruising boat doing the Gulf of Aden is worth to these scum suckers.
So. still wanna go up the Red Sea?
