Danm it John! Three times since you posted that Fuckn no for good Doomsday post I've had a nightmare.
In the dream I'm crossing the Atlantic as master of the Maersk Alabama when the INMARSAT phone rings. It's the USCG telling me that terrorists have dirty bombed the major US cities, our company office was hit and everyone from the ship superintendent to CEO is dead. I'm ordered to remain at sea and not attempt to enter US waters, then the phone goes dead. I hail another ship on the MF/HF GMDSS and find out their satellite equipment - phone, GPS, everything - is also dead.
So I'm in the middle of the atlantic in charge of a 500' containership with no comms and no idea what to do next.
What would you do?
Let's see, 22 people, 12 shotguns. Time to invade Canada.
Any port in a storm or closest port in a storm. Go home, even if it's not there.

You bastards with your damned dirty bombs!!!
Start opening containers, hope that theres a big shipment of rum in one of them.
Let them who know not how to pray, go to sea.
