      For ow the ship only goes up and down with the tide, no need of a captain while at anchor.
      But the situation might change an year or two, let’s wait and see.

        Hey Aladdin,
        I take it the ship is filled with oil so the sharks might drink it all if you leave it that long, which would upset the Persians a fair bit. Or some land thiefs might decide to move it to their refinery via truck to save a bit of money.
