Sad indeed. I meant to post pictures of the MQ, much like the ones Captain Ted just posted, from the ride-along I did with him in NOLA two weeks ago. But a slow modem while I was in Seattle foiled my attempts. What you can't see in the photos is how the black mold is so bad on the outside that it looks like smoke damage, and the boat continues to list badly. It nearly brought me to tears, and I had to turn away. Unbelievable that a vessel could be reduced so quickly to this, and we were powerless to do anything about it.
But let me add this: did anyone read Captain Ted's post about the open flame being used on the DQ? Why no outcry? It's just a matter of time until we lose her, too--and I am astonished no one picked up on this!
