No, not at all.

In the Rule 62' case, there was no evidence to mistreatment from the captain. No survivors has spoken since the tragedy. In this case, there were plenty of evidence at hand.

Not sure what is your problem?
I don't have a "problem", I'm simply gobsmacked by the irony of and inconsistency of your point of view...

You don't believe there is legitimacy to a lawsuit against the owner of RULE 62, whose incompetence or negligent behavior led directly to the DEATH of one of his crew, and yet you feel you are entitled to sue this guy because he simply "mistreated" you, and generally made your life unpleasant for a couple of weeks? Seriously?

Man up, accept the fact that it was your poor judgment that put you on that boat in the first place, chalk it up to another lesson learned, and move on...

Just my opinion, take it or leave it...
