    Figured it had to be something along these lines. Reminds of that Canadian ferry a few years ago where the first mate was busy with his girlfriend on the bridge.

    Budget operation, flag out to Panama, then hire the cheapest officers and crew you can find: India and Sri Lanka, then run up on a reef and act surprised.:rolleyes:

    Nothing new, been happening in the trucking industry as well.
    Not uncommon in CDA to see 2-3 East Indian drivers packed in one truck , that way they don't have to stop for the the govt required down time.
