whatever happens on their made for tv series, I acknowledge the fact that they are volunteers and committed and not sea savvy in some cases, but I also acknowledge that they have tried their best to put the activities of Japan's "research" fleet into the public sphere. For that they can be forgiven poor boat handling skills, misguided decisions, and the sort of command that comes from people whose passion often outweighs their abilities.
They are doing something about a cause they and I dare say the majority of people on this forum would ascribe to, whilst we merely discuss it from afar.
Think how much more effective they would be with sea skills that many of the forum members posess? At least we can ridicule them eh! Am sure the whaling fleet is hiring if you admire their boat handling skills more.
Sorry but for me its a black and white issue. You stand for whaling or you don't. And if you don't, then you need to ask yourself if denegrating the only people currently putting the cause on the mass media is constructive.

The cause is not an argument, what may be though is that as a charity, they could go a lot farther if they weren't wasting fundraised money replacing and/or fixing vessels wrecked through ignorance and incompetence.
I think that is the real gripe.
