Re: Sailboat perishes off Hatteras, USCG rescues crew
The flying analogy only goes so far. There is mandatory licensing for pilots. Pilots must master a complex body of technical knowledge to perform adequately. There are regulations, mandatory oversight and inspections of commercial planes.
I think this proves the point all the more, that despite complex regulations and knowledge/licensing requirements, the same stupid decisions are still made by people that know better. It represents human nature and faults in decision making happen regardless of skill level or experience.
