But would you want to travel on a ship without a captain or crew?


I'm surprised that it's even legal to do that! {:-{

When you read about stuff like this you can think "Possibly OK on a short trip in a slow boat in an enclosed space on nice flat water." 
But the same people seem to be thinking bigger.  I suspect that every one of them is an accountant, or possibly a marketing executive, who has never seen a ship, or the sea, and from the comfort of his boardroom is blissfully unaware of just how fast things can go wrong out there.
