    Sure he does. He comes from an afloat community that constant tells everyone else what to do, even if they're in the right and he's in the wrong. Some outfits think they're above the ROTR.... Navy's one of them.

    Fun nights in sea lanes near VA listening to Navy boats telling deepdrafts what to do.... just because. :rolleyes:
