We are talking about Jane's account here, so lets keep to it- she said there was plenty of water. Then she/ or they denied RD the necessity of cleaning his glasses. I say its petty and shows the poor leadership they had.

You may have your rules and you may enforce them on your boat. But I personally doubt that you would throw a sketchy crew in a sketchy situation into such a panic and provoke them, just to be vindictive. It seems like a stupid thing to do. I read your blog and I don't see that... I see intelligence and the opposite personality from Jane.
That was very nice and thank you.

But hey, I sail with kids. I have the final say with my crew no matter what - with the 'Don't Make Me Get Your Momma'!!! I suspect you may be right that they did not sit down with them and discuss matters. As I said before, this trip fell apart at the dock. But who really knows? THe crew and owners know. We are just guessing. Darn shame though. It could have been a blast.
