Fishing trips around the world

Coral Island, Thailand - A couple of Germans wanted to go on a fishing trip.
The boat was expected to arrive at 9:00 and they were all set and ready. For a long time it didn't show up and they called several times to the office in Phuket, who assured them that the boat was on its way. Of course the cliche joke about 'Thai time' was made. Finally the boat arrived at 9:45.
I thought it would be fun to imagine what could happen in the same situation in other countries.

Here are some examples:
GermanyBoat arrives at 8:45, just to be on the safe side.
FranceBoat is delayed for indefinite time due to strikes.
UKBoat arrives on time, but all gear is looted.
GreeceBoat is sold due to lack of funds.
IrelandBoat arrives, but the captain was pissed and fell overboard.
NorwayBoat arrives as planned, but the guy on deck starts shooting at you.
NetherlandsBoat arrives on time, but is hindered by Greenpeace activists to set sail, since fishing is cruel.
ItalyBoat arrives at 4:00, but is sent back by immigration.
SurinameBoat arrives at 9:00 sharp, but not that day and probably not that week.
IndonesiaYou set out fishing, but use of dynamite kind of spoils the sport.
RussiaBoat arrives, but after a while the vodka makes you forget what you came for.
JapanYou go fishing as planned, but you feel kind of sorry for the whale.
BangladeshBoat arrives on time, but is taken apart on the spot.
JamaicaHey don't worry man!
SomaliaAt sea you board a bigger boat and amongst others steal their fish.
NigeriaNo boat, but then again you should never pay in advance.
BermudaBoat arrived on time, but no one has heard from you since.
PalestinaThe crew arrives on time and blow up the rubber boat.
LibyaIt's kind of cramped in there with the other 100 passengers.
USBoat arrives on time and sets sail, but hey, who wants to fish when you can drink beer in the onboard jacuzzi.

Contributions anyone?
