I remember the Freewinds had an asbestos problem. Wikipedia tells the story of how the church hired a Polish firm but neglected to mention the asbestos...apparently they all quit when they found out and sued, but the story goes cold there. What happened? Wikipedia makes it sound like asbestos remediation in this case would be extremely expensive...well, it's always extremely expensive in my experience.
Also, Jason Beghe in his YT interview said the Freewinds was a "flea bag". I figured for whales, the church could at least manage a decent cruise ship. What's the Freewinds really like?
