As a footnote to my comments, the skipper was well over the legal limit for drunk. Unfortunately, that''s not going to help the boat manufacturer, as the boat design caused the accident, not a drunk skipper (sorry, that''s the way it is).
Also, the Mac 26 does have a warning label at the helm regarding the ballast, however on this particular boat the wrong label was placed there, only warning to drain the water ballast before putting the boat back on the trailer.
What a sad story!!!
