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.
I did mention that Dagryl's voice cuts through the storm (Higher pitches carry farther and clearer than lower ones, and he's also just plain louder than humans when he needs to be, in addition to higher pitched).
Also - Dagryl worked with the crew where he could, as mentioned in the opening post. But, Bigotted Steersman will be Bigotted Steersman, and... I rolled poorly on those combat checks, but at least the Jump Check was awesome. How far was the drop, anyway?
