Thank you IMAnonymous, for weaving a silky veil of truthiness around a cracking foundation of supposition, assumption, and presumption. You wrote that as if you were actually looking over their shoulder during the buying process, and sailed with them in it during their last miles. You seem to bring such authority on the matter without actually having any first or second-hand knowledge about either their boat or them as people, yet still you come to such concise and confident conclusions.
It was offered as a best guess. You even quoted me saying that. Evidentally, you failed to notice what you quoted.
I think one should debate why a boat disappears. It might save somebody else. The guy buys a boat that fails survey, comes in with his boom nailed together with two 2x4's, and crosses in October but that shouldn't be noted??
I'm hoping you don't investigate accidents for the Coast Guard or NTSB, otherwise we'd all be in trouble.
And I'm hoping you're not teaching safety classes.
