No life jackets, no safety harness. That one girl was even told she couldn't use a safety harness, after she had requested one. In my experience, many people resist putting on life jackets because they don't want to look wimpy. That's why the captain has to make it an order, especially with younger adults.
The cover up was especially disgusting. How can people lie while being presented evidence that exposes the lie?
Those grand fresh-water seas of ours - Erie, and Ontario, and Huron, and Superior, and Michigan, - possess an ocean-like expansiveness...They contain round archipelagoes of romantic isles...they have heard the fleet thunderings of naval victories...they know what shipwrecks are, for out of sight of land, however inland, they have drowned full many a midnight ship with all its shrieking crew. --from Moby Dick
