GCaptain has been posing an interesting question, just who sends a ship to the waters off east Africa with a one-man, unarmed security force?
Apparently the Greek owners of the Chemical Tanker “Liquid Velvet” aren’t big fans of armed security teams on board their vessels.
In their infinite wisdom, they assumed that the unarmed “advisor” they hired could defend the ship against pirates with his bare hands. The plan failed, and now the vessel’s Filipino crew and guard are in the hands of Somali terrorists.

And I have an interesting question to pose to GCaptain now the vessel has been released.
Just what sort of an idiot announces in the public domain to pirates that one of the crew they are holding is actually a security advisor? Dumb, dumb, dumb.
I think GCaptain should be prepared for a visit.
