Sounds more like a warning about blind skippers.

The skipper himself says it was all his fault, and if he'd been able to SEE, he wouldn't have gotten into that situation.

That wreck had nothing to do with nav systems or electronics, it was a skipper sailing without adequate knowledge of where he was.

Same thing could happen to any solo sailor who just takes short catnaps...and oversleeps once. You can't close your eyes when there's pointy stuff within range of the boat, period.
