Why isn't Scientology's ship the Freewinds hauling emergency supplies to the Bahamas? - 2019-09-17
The Church of Scientology is presently trying to make news by having its ambulance-chasing and photo-op-opportunists — a/k/a the Volunteer Ministers — rush emergency supplies to The Bahamas in the wake of Hurricane Dorian. In one photo not intended for publication, we see a smiling young man posing casually in a VM T-shirt posing on the deck of a yacht:
In this next official Scientology PR photo we see two young women posing on the same yacht with a look of grim determination. Scientology TV scriptwriters will spin the video something like this, "When every second counted, Scientology's Volunteer Ministers rushed desperately needed supplies to The Bahamas!"
The yacht used by the VMs to haul supplies for the photo shoot appears to be in the 75-foot class. The shortest sea route would be from Fort Lauderdale to Freeport. This is about 50 miles and the scheduled fast ferry makes the run in about 2.5 hours. Here is another PR photo of VMs unloading supplies from the stern of the vessel:
