You people expect way too much from these folks. Your absolutely right some have no business being there but this is no ordinary job of what their trying to do and Capt Watson must take what he can get. Very few people have "am anti-whaling expert and can perform in a dangerous environment" on their resumes. I thought it was quite moving how the school teacher knew he had screwed up and became emotional knowing he had let his students down. This has been a tough season for them no doubt, and I'm sure they didn't want all these setbacks to happen but they do not operate under normal circumstances and unforeseen incidents should be expected, it's how and if they can overcome them that is most important. Even if they are not successful, the desire to keep trying is still there and that is all that matters if you have any sympathy for whales surviving on this planet which many viewers of this channel I'm sure do.
