Very interesting story. Nice of you to put it out here so we can all think about what our own actions might have been in similar circumstances. Glad to hear you're ok, sorry to hear about the boat. So often I've heard it said that tragedies are precipitated by a single event that often is overlooked or thought to be minor at the time. Do you think there was one thing like that in what you experienced that triggered the cascade toward the ultimate loss of your boat? Was there a tipping point beyond which you could do nothing to save the vessel but before which you might have been able to affect a more positive outcome?
