Eh ? Seems to me that we are in agreement. I'm not too sure how we are at odds.

In case my meaning was unclear .... I was commenting on what I saw as unjustified attempts to throttle the discussion on the grounds that it might upset family and friends.

Presuming that it does not include claims that the skipper was fornicating with the ship's cat I see nothing wrong with speculation as to the possible cause(s) of the presumed loss of the Nina.
