He answered the question if the crews used DAP as chaulking below water line. And the shipyard does not use DAP for seams.
Captain told the owner to get rid of the boat asap, Captain fears of lawsuit.

I overheard that during the Todd Kosakowski testimony. I am not sure if others like Dave heard that too. ?
During the last haul out, captain and the owner knew that they could not have fix all the rots. And both were surprised by the extents of rotted structure. They deferred the fixes until the next haul out. I am not surprised that lawsuit was in their mind if anything happens to Bounty.
