From what both RD and Jake have said ( more than once ) that was the issue

Also, by what Jake recently posted, the use of A/P was a non-issue as far as the rules and being DQ'ed. Personally, based only on what RD and Jake posted, the skipper was operating under diminished capacity and the crew did what was necessary to bring the boat and her crew in unharmed.
