Fishing Charter Captain Arrested

Some may remember that I started a Delivery Boat and Training Business last year.

In my summary of what I had learned I mentioned that the industry is full of unprofessional Captains.

Here is an example of an unprofessional Captain on a fishing Charter

Boat captain arrested for allegedly threatening, holding passengers hostage during fishing trip
A Florida charter captain was arrested for boating under the influence of alcohol after reportedly threatening and holding his passengers hostage while on a 12-hour fishing trip over the weekend. The captain was also allegedly under the influence of drugs during the trip.

Re: Fishing Charter Captain Arrested

Saw that article this morning on the local news. Too many people reporting the same thing to pass this off as some sort of miscommunication or misunderstanding. This is completely unacceptable, illegal, and dangerous behavior. What a butthead. He obviously has some problems and maybe his time in jail will give him access to resources to truly get help. Me thinks his lack of values is rooted much deeper, perhaps back to his upbringing.

went to get a beer for his uncle, Lopeparo, from the captain’s pail
You can tell it's a class operation when the Captain has his own pail on the bridge with him.

Re: Fishing Charter Captain Arrested

Some people develop a real attitude problem when drinking. I've known nice, considerate guys to turn into complete monsters when they get past a certain limit. I'm guessing he wanted that beer supply pretty bad at some point.
