That was my thought. Are they too stupid to use a GPS????
They are going to look up in a day or two and see three or four huge gray ships looking down on them.
Are you ready for the stereotype?? The lifeboat has excess buoyancy, in other words if you fill it full of water it would not sink. So forget about sinking it. Put a few very small shape charges on its hull and blow it into several pieces.
Black people don't swim. This is true for the vast majority of blacks. A few seals just under the water could help them descend into the depths. Scuttle it and pull the bad guys down. If the mother ships get anywhere close to this action sink them. It's time to make a statement that even the ignorant muslims can understand.

Black people don't swim.

Neither do white captains if you blow them into several pieces.
