Captain Richard Phillips Story

Capt Richard Phillips

Capt Richard Phillips

Now here is a guy who is as daring and American as American Pie, Capt Richard Phillips of the US flagged ship Alabama from the Maesrk corporation. He was the skipper of the US ship Alabama which was taken over by the pirates who then simply fled with the captain Richard Phillips in their bobbing dinghy.

From subsequent news reports I read that skipper Phillips in fact turned himself over to the pirates so his crew could get a safe passage. Americans should read this story and take solace in it when all we have been looking at back home is greedy bankers and financial executives. Here is a guy who traded his life and put it in jeopardy so that the rest of his team could go home and be safe.

Captain Richard Phillips use to be a former taxi driver before joining the shipping trade and enlisting as a sailor. When he was taken as a hostage, during the midnight he almost escaped his captors with a dramatic dive for freedom and liberty but when the captors shot at him, he gave up his quest for flight.

I will be updating this page and pasting more about this brave and daring gentleman as the story unfolds. But meanwhile, do you know him or have heard of his before? What do you think about this. Write your opinion in the feedback form below.

      DonR, I agree with you. This guy followed in the finest traditions of leadership by trading himself with the pirates so that his crew could remain free. He should be feted for that.

      Can anyone tell me the previous ships Captain Phillips sailed on ?

      I think I may have met and worked for him when he was engineering officer on the tanker Asphalt Commander.

      This waas about twelve or fifteen years ago in Port Manatee on Florida West Coast.

      Any info on his past ships would be appriciated.

    6. Nice Work , i will add yr blog in my fav …:) Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

      This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    27. I came across this internet web site and I should say I’m completely overjoyed at what I’m seeing. I really like how you are able to genuinely feel such really like and such encouragement just on the website alone.

    29. Thanks for giving your ideas in this article. The other point is that whenever a problem arises with a pc motherboard, individuals should not have some risk of repairing it themselves because if it is not done properly it can lead to permanent damage to the complete laptop. It is usually safe to approach your dealer of the laptop for any repair of that motherboard. They’ve already technicians who have an competence in dealing with notebook motherboard issues and can have the right analysis and conduct repairs.
