Maybe out of turn.
We, all readers of sail net (including me) seem to assume the sailors knew the conditions as we know of now. Jesus Christ, not even the weather men can predict 3 days more that 50/50.
But, given what unknown sailors were thinking and doing at the time of the storm---Kinsabe!
I will assume they were using there best judgement, whether with barometer, compass and chart, or weather radar, chartplotter, and Bill Gates’s davy chest aboard, they would do their best to survive. DumAss’s,,, I think not. How about, “I didn’t think it would get this ******* bad”! hmm, I say that at least 5 times a year. Hopefully, they were a student of Lynn and Larry Pardey.
