Re: A different way to handle a crash --
Bad things happening to good people. Nope, I don't like hearing about this kind of behavior in our society of seafarers. It's another case of being forced into a situation and having to choose the lesser evil. It can and does happen to all of us. Though not surprising that Liz took the path she did, maybe all of us stand to lose something, as well, when issues like this aren't addressed fairly without having to resort to employing our own insurance, the courts and lawyers when accidents happen.
This incident appears to be pretty straight-forward, especially with the documentation and admission of responsibility obtained and witnessed when the accident occurred. Maybe Dream Yacht Charter needs to know that the world beyond them can be informed and reactive and can actually hurt them if they choose to act irresponsibly.
Our SN community has insight, experience, compassion, and must be able to exert a degree of influence on behalf of others in a case like this. Yes? No?
