Quote:
“There are a lot of armchair sailors saying, ‘What the hell was he doing out there?’ ” said Richard Bailey, a captain who worked with Walbridge and has known him for more than 20 years.

“He had a strategy,” Bailey said. “Aside from being dead, it makes great sense. I think a professional examination will say it was a good strategy, but it didn’t take into account a complete and utter loss of power.”
