These 2 facts make it a suicide mission.

CM silence to the crew didn't help them understand the risks.

I think CM had every opportunity to dissent, leave or at least call the CG when this was going down.

Technically they were supposed to notify CG on generator and bilge failures.

We can slice it for 100 more pages, their actions are pretty clear now.

I think that's actually the biggest problem that his officers were afraid/unwilling to challenge his reckless plan.
