That's why the reports typically posit proximate cause, contributing causes, findings of fact, and recommendations for the future. -Nolatom
That says it in a nutshell I beleive. And that from a previous board investigative board member if his credentials are correct.
I submit aside from the fact that he sailed into a hurricane, there is no concrete evidence about the condition of the ship that day which has been verfied, the captains and the crews sailing profile of the day, how they handled the emergency, etc. just speculatuion from past pictures etc.
First hand testimony is needed.
One question I still have which I am suprised has not been brought up. Why did they not have the CG come get them when the first emergency call went out. They were well past the storm center at that point and in the SW quadrant. Were the conditions at that point not warrenting an evacuation or should it have been done then.
