Thanks for helping clarify our disconnect. I was referring to things we do know, not that we know everything, nor leveraging off things we don't. We know the weather forecasts, we know the ship's track, we know what the crew said in the interview, we know this was an 18th century hull design and more.

I'm not suggesting its everything we need to know, but its enough for me to form an opinion that the loss of life was avoidable. I better understand why you read me differently and why the emotion this thread was started to explore. Thanks.
