Re: Suicide at Sea and captain charged
I've done enough ocean passages with crew to know that you'll be in a very small place... where you'll have to work together and tolerate people's idiosyncrasies.
Always best to know the crew, their experience and come with strong positive recommendations. If they are a nice pleasant person when you interview them... they could be lying or putting on a show. And you may learn it was a huge mistake. Or you make get lucky. Reduce the risk... do your due diligence in vetting people you go out into the ocean with.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
