Ever Given crew fears getting stranded on their ship
So sailors getting stranded on their ships while the ship's owners negotiate with authorities (or just wait until the ship goes away) is a thing and the Ever Given crew is worried they'll not be able to leave the ship while the owners are in talks with the Egyptian government.
"According to the International Maritime Organisation, there were at least 31 cases of abandonment between January and August 2020, concerning 470 seafarers. The IMO has recorded 438 cases affecting 5,767 seafarers since 2004.
Even Mohammed Aisha’s longstanding case isn’t unique to the Gulf of Suez: a Turkish captain, Vehbi Kara, was abandoned onboard the MV Kenan Mete in June last year, left on a ship infested with mice and without food or water."

this passage being like "well yes, this verse is grammatically masculine, but it applies to women too!" is Interesting to me both because it foreshadows and encapsulates so much of the sturm und drang about gender and language and marked/unmarked categories that's going to unfold in the ~1,500 years after this gets codified and also because i'm writing a siddur that explicitly changes this very very to be neither masculine nor feminine and they could have too #DafYomi #Yoma11
