Re: Interesting tale of a captain who abandoned vessel
I can't tell you how much a story like this ticks me off! He abandons the vessel without scuttling it so it can drift (forever?) as a hazard to navigation, and then leaves it on a pristine beach for others to deal with. While it is very disturbing about the looting, particularly on the Vineyard were I would not have expected it, it could not have happened to a more deserving person. With luck he won't have the $ for the salvage fees, and ownership of the boat will pass to a more responsible owner.
