I probably haven't done a very good job of describing this, but there's a lot of shouting and confusion going on right now. Add the heavy waves crashing onto the deck, and the crew would be doing well just to understand what Dagryl was shouting. If they do understand, they're not likely to obey him because he's not in charge. Halsteg is giving orders, and the hands on deck are currently split between hauling in the rigging to prevent the ship from capsizing and getting a line over the side to help those who've fallen over (a nearly hopeless task).
To the sailors on deck, Dagryl is just a passenger and hasn't visibly done anything to warrant obedience, and seems to be breaking down under stress more than anything.
I am sorry for being unresponsive... I was waiting until everyone had posted an action to post again. Since we're not in strict combat time, I guess that wasn't really necessary. In the future, I'll just post without regard to anyone who hasn't.
