How does that work?

Its his boat, not yours. Where do you get off telling him what to do with it. You've got no skin in the game.

Don't feed me that line of crap your lives were in danger either, neither the race organizers nor the CG nor the US Navy believed that or they would have truly intervened.
If the water situation was as reported, it's not crap. It IS life-threatening. And your life is about as much "skin in the game" as you can possibly give. This is where you and Sal are dead wrong. Any conclusions you try to draw beyond that flawed calculus are just as wrong.

In the situation as portrayed, these guys absolutely did the right thing. Period. Everyone made it home safely.
