Heroic mariners

Temperarily aside from the politics, says one who gets slapped for his political views on this forum, lets celebrate mariners who stepped up during a crisis to help the "aquatically challenged" escape a traumatic event...

...and my mom emailed me this link today so I better see like 50 posts giving it a thumbs up or I will hunt you all down...

Re: Heroic mariners

What an awesome story; I hadn't heard about this before. Certainly brought some tears to my eyes.

It must have been scary too; one couldn't know if the boats would be targeted as well.
