Something is just sitting in my stomach poorly. One person dying is not enough to change anything, but two people is. I want to get that, but it really just doesn't sit well.

I think the problem I'm having is it just wasn't totally unexpected that a violent episode could happen on these hulls, therefore, the first should probably be a wake up call. Someone mentioned a death on a Laser. That's more understandably a freak accident, with incredibly low odds.
