By BusinessLife, published on Jul 29, 2011

Captain Paul Watson must decide to follow the Nisshin Maru into the path of ice or go down around and hope the Japanese whaling ship and its crew don’t double back to continue whaling.

Watson decides he would rather go around and possibly lose them rather than possibly damaging the Steve Irwin vessel and losing the opportunity to stop their whaling for the entire whaling season.

After the helicopter pilot, Chris Aultman flies 5 trips – 9 hours flying during a 19-hour day, Aultman has to stop and rest. He is exhausted.

Last week, two crew members from the Bob Barker suffered hypothermia after waiting in small motor boats for more than 12 hours. Finally, all Sea Shepherd crew are now back on board the Bob Barker.

Meanwhile, the Steve Irwin has received a distress call from the New Zealand Search and Rescue. They are asking for the crew onboard the Steve Irwin to help find the five missing crew members who were onboard a Norwegian-registered yacht, the Berserk.

The Berserk sent a distress call approximately 18 nautical miles (33km) north of Scott Base in the Ross Sea. This is the point of... (more)
