I am no sailor of any kind, but it doesn't take one to know that you are right. It is so easy for people to judge something when they have no facts in the case. Regardless of the captain's propensity for "chasing hurricanes", we do not know what caused this ship to sink. I haven't followed the story that closely, but I don't recall information being released even about how long they struggled before the captain ordered the crew to abandon ship. It is possible that what happened had absolutely nothing to do with the hurricane. We should wait until the facts are in before we crucify this man.
