And I was just talking to my ex about how I thought it was odd, that pirates would conduct their attack in two red vessels. considering red vessels are very easy to spot. But then come to think of it, if you were on a boat, and you saw a red vessel heading in your direction you may think it's towboat, lifeguard, or Coast Guard,or something of that nature. and not be alarmed until it was too late to be alarmed.
That's odd that it was on 72. I was at Cat and heard a vessel on 72 telling someone that they were taking on water and the pumps couldn't keep up. Crew of three on the bridge. I couldn't hear anyone come back, but it was apparent they were getting a come back (I just wasn't picking it up). I hailed them for #'s and offer assistance, and didn't get anything back. It went blank after that. After a couple of minutes I switched to 16 to hear anything and nothing was said about anything of that nature.
It seemed odd that a call like that was on 72.
