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?

From the aforesaid website:

"The goal of the site is to collect the facts about this senseless tragedy and present them for the world to view in hopes that similar tragedies, loss of life and property can be avoided. We seek the truth and aim to publish the truth in this case without bias.

If you have information that would aid in holding the ship owner’s accountable for the losses, we encourage you to contact us ASAP."

One might suggest the words "without bias" in the first para. are undercut by all the words of the second paragraph??
