2 friends were going on this same trip TD was going. They too saw the same exact thing TD was stating. They also left. Maybe this is why the boat eventually sailed with much less than what was seen originally? No one knows for sure how many potential passengers saw the crowds and left.
Edited by BowhunterNJ: Just removing the part that would invoke more potential argument. The first part of the thread is relevant to this trip and worth adding. At this point given the amiable closure to this trip, I don't want to rekindle any controversy. Let's all just move on and take away from this thread what we can.
