Who cares about the Coast Guard inquiry?
It's probably Mickey Mouse in comparison with the coming lawsuits. The captain is dead and the ship is gone.
What are they going to do, pull the deceased captain's license and fine the owner of the boat for failure to maintain or assess the costs of the rescue?
Much to the chagrin of those who believe in government to solve our problems, administrative proceedings are not the be-all and end-all to legal liability.
