Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew
Wthout knowning the interactions of the parties involved I believe I am not in a position to be judgmental beyond noting from what information is available the owner hired these guys to deliever his boat and his boat was lost. I don't think it is appropriate to question their judgement if they felt their lives were at risk. You can replace a material object but not lives. I am interested in how the judgement was made to leave on that day, by that route, in that boat at that level of preparation. I'm am interested in what factors were in play. I'm also interested beyond google search and references what an owner should and can do to protect such a major asset.
