Exactly, the risk with the smaller boats was already known. I would love to hear whether they really thought a larger, faster version would be less risky. Seems to defy logic, but I'm open to hearing that they thought it would, even if they are being proved wrong. I would feel better about that.

As it stands, it seems Ellison was just upping the ante.
