A while back, another forum discussion over that video, concluded that since the confused skipper's prior boat had wheel steering, he became disoriented with the tiller and froze . . . don't know how true that is.

Edit - I may have it backwards - It was quite a while ago and don't recall if the destroyed boat had a wheel or tiller.
