I'll let him know about the voiceovers. Am sure he will be very flattered!

This sounds very convincing - from this man's account, it does seem likely that his ship was being used as a decoy. Amazing to sit there on a huge ship, just like a sitting duck, waiting to be attacked - and yet still have the confidence he does. (and by the way, someone should tell this bloke that he could do voice-overs for advertisements)
