Does anybody think that the IHH is going to show up a few hours prior to the posted departure time and bop onboard without having spent any time on training or planning? Of course not. Most of the 1500 passengers will, but the 40 or so hardened activists charged with defending the ship have been in training for a year. At the very least they have trained in advanced hand to hand combat, and wear gas masks and body armor. Minimum preparations for the crew would be to make the bridge bulletproof and to have a vaultlike communications room capable of maintaining communications to the outside world. It should have monitors displaying the feeds of shipboard hidden cameras along with food and water for a week or so.
