Re: Sinking of Rule 62
It hurts every time when I think about Rule 62. I feel the pain of Laura's family. I was told that she was the last minute replacement crew after the previous crew (also a she) could not participate in C1500.
But anyway, Suing the Captain is just wrong. We all know the risks when we sign on the voyage. Making other responsible for the death is troublesome for me. It is going to have a profound impact on future in crewing and captaining either pay or not.
But it is easy for me to say, I respect their decision/action.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
