Shipwright says he had converstaion with Walbridge that he had to pick and chose his weather.
Jesus, this make things even worse. How having care with the weather plays with Walbrige taking the boat to an Hurricane?

Walbrige is not around for blaming and the question here is if the boat owner knew about the boat's bad condition and that the boat should not be sailed in bad weather. If so that would be blaming him for letting Walbrige sail out to an Hurricane. All evidence points in that sense but no factual prove yet.
