Who is Tony Thornton?

Fellow man of the sea, Tony, is a retired Naval Officer. He served his country in the Navy during his younger years and is now the founder and CEO of the global tech company, ‘Just One Technology’.

According to Facebook, Tony married his loving wife Porchia 5 years ago. They live together in the high-end area of Potomac, Maryland.

Though Tony is the CEO of a highly successful company he also enjoys the lighter side of life. He is a huge sports fan, attending PGA Masters and watching courtside at the Washington Wizard’s basketball games.

What happened in last night’s episode?

Tony’s charter started incredibly well, as a fellow man of the sea and ex-Navy Officer, he was welcomed with open arms.

Before he stepped onto the boat he asked Captain Lee for permission to do so, as well as saluting him when he came aboard. Captain Lee appreciated this and appeared shocked and delighted at the same time.

However, the charter wasn’t all plain sailing, if you’ll pardon the pun. Later in the episode then guests had to make a complaint to lead stewardess Heather Chase, as their food contained shellfish. Something they had specially mentioned they did not eat on their preference sheet.

Aside from the minor errors, from the episode, we can see Tony’s charter was going pretty well but we will have to wait for next week to see if they get a decent tip or not.
