The first thing I'd do is divorce the guy... again!

I can't imagine letting anyone you love and care about head out alone, at night, in rough weather, on a new boat neither of you know anything about to sail a treacherous coast.

And to make that trip alone, you would either have to be drunk and so furious at your spouse you can't see straight or mentally unstable and married to someone who doesn't want you around anymore. Two people let this happen, the wife and the husband. They can't both be out of their minds. One of them had to know what she was getting into.
Whoa! That's a bit heavy. There is a world of difference between counseling against doing something and trying to stop someone. I have an ambition to do something that the admiral thinks is crazy and dangerous but she would never dream of trying to stop me, anymore than I would try to actually prevent her from doing something, no matter what my opinion. Trying to stop someone only results in conflict and resentment.

Having said that, no one here knows what took place between them - but the conjecture is rife.
