I have the feeling at least one Skipper wasn't. Regardless, too close to pass

It does seem like some testosterone was involved somehow

That whole area is a mad house, I used to be officer of the watch on container ships running around there, the stuff of nightmares. Little fishing
boats poping up right ahead with only a candle and nets all over the place, shoals and smoke from forest fires. I used to come of my watch exhausted.
I always thought standing watch was easy. Probably is 99% of the time. It's that 1% that will exhaust you.
