Seems that Rustic Charm's information may have been in error. Perhaps check your sources?? Are they credible, reliable and honest?
I was quoting an article in the Sydney Morning Herald, so who knows if it's reliable. It's what was reported at the time and he freely entered Australia and then later the U.S. freely without any hindered efforts, so he clearly has a passport from some where.

Re: New Sea Shepherd vessel and shes a beauty

I can usually grab a garbage bag full of mylar balloons on a day sail around LA harbor. I wonder if I can call my boat a research vessel?

You can call her an RV if you pick up the latex ones.

Thing is, Jim, there are a lot of people on this site who have never stepped off the shore, let alone spent most of their life sharing the ocean with some of the Earth's most beautiful creatures. Those of us that have had that privilege naturally develop strong feelings, the others just parrot what they hear on TV. Sea Shepard dont care what they think, they just get out there.

i think the only folks who take sea shepherd seriously are sea shepherd and their misguided and politically correct crews.

I don't see how. It does not say "never owned one" or "never been sailing" now does it?

You're about rude. Been on the water since 4 that only make it 67 yrs.

You can speak when you get that much time. Until then put a sock in it. Go crew with Watson if you think he is a hero.

I can understand people thinking this but in reality, whilst they may have a lot of those who are apposed to their work, they clearly have 'significant' supporters.

There was an attempt in Tasmania to have the capital city named as their home city. It drew significant support.

The Republic of Guatemala (Navy and Sea Fisheries) sought and worked together with Sea Shepherd in their attempts to stop poaching.

Sea Shepherd has the practical and financial support of enough people that it has not only kept Sea Shepherd afloat, but increased it's work in many different areas.

And the Japanese Government clearly takes them seriously too, crediting Sea Shepherd with almost breaking their whaling industry and accusing the Australian Government (erroneously of course) of working together with Sea Shepherd against the Japanese.

So, I think, 'your thinking' is plainly in error. Thank goodness. Because if it wasn't for this organisation of 'pollitictially correct crews' (what ever that means), a number of whales would be on the endangered list and there wouldn't be any blue fin tuna.

Re: New Sea Shepherd vessel and shes a beauty

It totally sucks that a real problem like plastics in the food chain becomes some political issue.

I wholeheartedly agree with you, but, lets also keep in mind that the large commercial pillaging of fauna are also 'the real problem'. anyone who does not recognise that need to get their bum out of a lounge seat and out on their boats and into the oceans' more.

And of course the warming of the ocean's due to the impact of mankind is also a 'real problem' too. Though, many don't believe that's happening at all.
