The Sea Shepherds' scout vessel, the Brigitte Bardot, is slammed by a 30-foot wave, and water is entering the vessel through a crack in the pontoon. The terrified crew issues a distress call to the rest of the Sea Shepherd fleet, but help is more than 20 hours away. Fighting swells and brutal cold, the crew hopes to hold the outrigger in place with rope and straps. If the damaged piece is ripped from its slender mount, the crew fears the vulnerable craft may be torn to pieces.

What a shame, it looks like the SeaHippies may loose another vessel.

Starting to think those cute boats or captains aren’t seaworthy, but then I repeat myself. Mz Bardot should have some more millions to throw away.

The Admiral will be able to paint another kill on the bridge of his flagship. Friend or foe doesn't matter - he just likes to take credit for ships sent to the bottom.

The irony is that in the intro they say the only way to stop them is to sink them. They seem to be good at that without the help of the whalers.

The naval version of a circular firing squad.

They seem surprised that the whalers might have changed course after spotting the SeaHippie chopper.

The Shonan Maru, now rechristened the Battleship Yamato, has the sea hippies in its sights.

Hopefully replaced the water cannon with a real one. Which hippie chick is the captain harpooning?

The funny part is they are all clueless on how thy manged to screw up so bad in a week. I guess it never occurred to Admiral Mouth Breather that his incompetent crew could have something to do with it.

With this inept bunch of landlubbers (who think they’re master mariners), I am amazed that they haven’t killed someone yet. They certainly aren’t good ship handlers or ship drivers.

Admiral Mouth Breather sent the Bardot in to seas with 7-8 meter swells, with the boat only designed for 3 meter swells. Thankfully if something goes wrong they have plenty of help nearby, oh what, never mind.

Well, if they do go under, that hippie grease will float and we’ll know where.

At least they won’t have to worry about any major environmental impact from a oil spill, since they seem intent of letting it run out.

Actually the Minnow had a more competent Captain and mate. No way would he have been in those seas in a kayak.

I don’t watch this hippie show, but I would if I heard that some Japanese ship slammed into the hippies boat and sunk it with them on board. But having all those skanky hippies in the water might cause a major oil slick and kill thousands, if not millions, of fish.

Would probably be the first bath these occutards ever had.

Happened a few seasons ago with the Ady Gil. This season it looks like they sink or severely damage it’s replacement taking it into seas it never should have been in.

‘Deadliest Catch’ is pretty popular - I watch it regularly. If Watson & inept crew want some bad publicity, a sure way to get it is to start interfering with crabbing in the Bering Sea.

You know with these Irresponsible DumbA$$’ floating around out there for how long now(?) I’m very surprised there hasn’t been any fatalities by now.

Great pay-per-view suggestion.

As I understand it, if the hippy boat did sink, then the Japanese boat would be obliged to rescue them, if nearby.

A question occurs to me. I’m sure the hippies are being paid for each episode they appear in, do the Japanese sailors get anything? After all, there wouldn’t be a show without them.
