Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew

Here's a question that I'm sure I'll get abuse for.

If I am engaged in a potentially dangerous, commercial venture, should I, or my insurance be expected to foot the rescue bill if it all goes wrong?

As an aside, If the carcass of the boat is now coughed up on an eastern seaboard shore, who foots the bill for the recovery/cleanup/disposal? The delivery captain who abandoned her, or the the owner?
