Re: Interesting tale of a captain who abandoned vessel

Am I missing something? What about individual responsibility?

One buys a boat, goes sailing, then abandons ship asking a freighter to save you. You leave the boat to be a hazard to navigation by not scuttling it and lastly leave it on a pristine beach so you can run a road race.

I find this behavior indefensible. Not the attempt to try the sailing adventure, but the walking away from the boat once the decision to abandon was made. He essentially said "Not my problem any more! Your problem now." It makes me puke.
