If the organization (or boat owner) is telling a Capt to get the boat out of port as a storm is coming, could the owner be held fully or partially accountable, or as Capt are you accountable for all ship movements?

I don't think so. The owner had no obligation to know the risks the boat and the crew will sustain or if the boat will be safe on doing the passage.

It is the Captain that has to decide what is safe or not even at the cost of his job.
