While fighting heavy seas in pursuit of the Japanese whaling fleet, the Sea Shepherd scout vessel Brigitte Bardot was struck by a rogue wave that has cracked the hull and severely damaged one of the pontoons on the vessel.
Captain Paul Watson, onboard the Sea Shepherd flagship Steve Irwin, reports that they are fighting heavy seas to reach the position of the Brigitte Bardot some 240 miles to the southeast. It is expected to take twenty hours to reach the damaged.

Would you answer a distress call from a ship that had just tried to foul your prop in arctic waters knowing that it could just be a ploy to get another shot at you?

You wonder why the Japanese fleet hasn't responded?
If you were doing something that was completely legal by all international standards and laws, and a group of renegade people who are deadset that their beliefs are right are constantly attacking your ship with prop foulers, stink bombs, slippery bombs, lasers, and assorted other underhanded tactics...would you really go help them out after they have an accident?
