Most of the comments here seem to be about the specific causes of the sinking. The root cause seems pretty apparent - being at sea, in notoriously dangerous waters, with a hurricane bearing down.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
