Re: Suicide at Sea and captain charged


Who knows all the conversations that took place. The man was seasick, within an hour of leaving the dock, and never recovered. They never met him before. Why not Turn the boat around, or head for Charleston or Jacksonville and drop him off?

The man didn't disclose his medical history ( heart, anti-depressants, Antibiotics etc.) That's on him! But, at the same they didn't think to ask? Yes, you can turn a boat around in the ocean! Unless you're more worried about a schedule?

The Gun and the Pot...will do nothing but hurt his credibility in this regardless of how capable he was. Tough luck for all involved. One mistake can ruin your life.
