He answered the question if the crews used DAP as chaulking below water line. And the shipyard does not use DAP for seams.

Edited:
Captain told the owner to get rid of the boat asap, Captain fears of lawsuit.
Yes he saw the Bounty crew used DAP and approved it though. Yeah but he said he talked to the Captain 30 times about it. First hes said no one was there...hard to beleive. When pressed he said a couple of times 5 people were present. Never did a post work walk though other than to look for leftbehind equipment and see if there were leaks. He never documented anything....but mysteriously he had 30 pictures. he said he never even showed them to his boss. If he was so worried about the condition he showed amazing restraint in telling anyone till after she sank.
