Re: Ocean baby rescue underway off Mexico
I'm not making a huge case out of it, but I think there is a distinction between a boat that sunk on its own and one that was scuttled. The former may imply damage, the latter a volunteer abandonment.
When someone states that the family should repair the boat and be on their way, it makes no difference.
Context is everything.
