Re: Bryan Chong's first hand recount of the Low Speed Chase tragedy
Yep, according to Chong's account, the last time anyone even attempted to steer was when the helmsman pointed her into the first wave just before the wave broke - It appears she made that final turn just fine.
Can you imagine what that helm/rudder did, though, when she started to surf backward
at several knots?
