Re: Repair of broken hull around keel stub

One other thing I am confused about. You refer to the helmsman as the skipper. Does whoever is steering the boat assume command of the vessel?

As far as I am concerned, I remain the captain of the vessel whether I am on the bow or behind the wheel. As such, I am ultimately responsible for all that happens while underway.

In your scenario, since your friend was the skipper, why isn't he responsible for all the damage?
