Best of luck to Shane, a Mass. Maritime graduate and crewmember on the US-flag ship that was recently captured by pirates. Luckily, the latest reports show the crew was able to recapture the ship from the pirates themselves.
It’s hard to remember there’s still large-scale piracy in the world. It’s also hard to remember how dumb pirates can be. Taking a US-flag ship? Not a wise idea in any case.
