It's interesting that the owner was invoking his Fifth Amendment rights before any questions have been asked. I'm sure there are things he could add to the inquiry without incriminating himself.

And if questions remain, the actual workers at the shipyard should be questioned along with the representatives of the yard. The people that did the actual hands on repairs know much more about those repairs than the management. Were those repairs done properly and completely, or just enough to get by due to financial concerns? Was the ship dry docked? Those fees can be tremendous, was that a factor?

Or was it something completely different. Possible arrogance by the Captain? Did weathering hurricanes successfully in the past give him a false sense of security?

Hopefully, a complete picture will emerge, and all the questions will be answered.
