Do seafarers have no souls and "No Crew Change" Clauses

I did my foreign going sailing prior to 911, when you could get ashore for a beer or a walk, even though we usually docked in the wilds at the tanker or ore docks. After 911, things changed, crew couldn't get ashore. Now we have Covid and not only can they not get ashore, some have been onboard for ...

Merlyn, people don't get that we could go back to the beginning, do they?
