John.
John, Split, etc., my post meant, in my intention, to point out that the owner can't plot every single moment of the navigation of his ships, it can surely reconstruct all throug GPS, Black Box, etc. and therefore is true that he can't know that the Concordia Master was deviating from the prescribed course.
The "salute" is a tolerated practice, provided that it doesn't imply risk for the ship: and this lays only on the master judgement.
