I probably didn't study this situation as well as I could have for this conversation but it sounds like the Owner knew a whole lot more than the Crew. There definitely would have been a Captains responsibility to his crew at issue here no matter what but unfortunately this falls entirely on the owner.
I agree Albrazzi, I think that's the hard part for fatal incidents, we often don't get to find out the whole story but we do try our best to get what we can and avoid it in the future.

Re: Cheeki-Rafiki: Another Shoe Falls

The article says that Cheeki left for England with some keel bolts missing. Really? If that is true, negligence is beyond 'likely' in this case. Not sure who knew about it - not stated in the article - but if it was the company boss, that dude is guilty as sin.
