Re: Interesting tale of a captain who abandoned vessel
Put a baby in a clothes drier, and the drier will run happil for days, the baby, not so much. So why should it be surprising that boats can weather a storm better than the wetware that owns them?
It is mildly puzzling why the Edgarton rescue squad managed to put a man aboard the boat, while it was still floating freely (so it sounds) and yet they didn't bother to either take it in tow (good salvage claim) or drop the anchor, to stop it from running ashore. Almost as if they had a non-compete agreement with wreckers, one gets the warm bodies, the other gets the bounty.
