Interviewed after heir arrival, Graham Marrat, the Fri's radio operator said they were "buzzed" by French planes but suffered no real harassment. They sailed within 20-miles of the atoll. Since the interview the Fri has been towed out of the area by the French. Spirit of Peace owner Clive Dasler said the crew would protest non-violently if the boast was taken over by the French Navy.
