    Truth offered many different types of packages. Including Load Limit. A premium excursion where the number of passengers were limited and premium food and meals were served. Whole boat charters are a standard in the industry where a club or dive shop books a boat or resort and then resells the slots.

    This boat was designed and built before the days of smoke detectors. The result the boat was outfitted with $9.99 independent battery operated devices like you find at Home Depot or Walgreens. After disturbing the guest and help in the past. Likely the batteries were removed. #RealWorld

    You nailed that one. The crew, captain, and owners will be slow roasted. The underwriter will simply pay out the policy limits and disappear. In a few years small charter boats will disappear or look very, very diffferent.

    The Conception's certificate of inspection required a roving watchman, US Coast Guard Capt. Monica Rochester said at a news conference. "The role of that person is to rove and check on the safety of the area they have been placed in charge of," she said.

    Some spew like all stairs, ladders, and passageways are all the same. The modern paying dive passenger is not your healthy foredeck or sewer dude. Many cannot climb a regular rung later just before lunch in daylight. The crew went to sleep in their separate closed door berthing space and woke up after something got well out of hand. No person was stationed or one watch on the primary middle deck.

    A commercial vessel with paid passengers? Enough to ensure the safety of the passengers and any cargo. In this case the crew, captain, and owners failed that duty and tasks while they were sleeping behind close doors together. George Washington would have shot them for the derelictions. In 2019 the guilty will be tried on CNN and another 1000 media channels. The defense attorneys of the various underwriters will demand everyone keep their mouth shut. 5 paid hands survived. The truth will leak to the surface.

    One of the original owners and founders was the designer. He cashed out long ago. He will be one of the next to be roasted in the media.

    The release of there is one is BS. The US air industry has a treaty that determines limits on damages. Maritime has their own limits and mandatory payments. The surviving crew will have guaranteed Jones Act benefits.

    You cannot signed away the right to something before you have it. When it comes to negligence or gross error. Those wavers are worthless when it comes to real damages. The release might hold of you slip on ice skating. No chance of the Zamboni hurts you.

    The surviving crews claims are they woke up to a fully involved fire on the main deck. The decks between passenger sleeping quarters and the pilot house crew sleeping quarters. The captain made two mayday calls from the pilot house and the surviving crew leaped from the bow into the water. There was no adequate watch awake. I can see a practice of long dive work days were everyone needs sleep. The accident review will not accept that practice. Even the Holiday Express keeps someone awake and alert.

    Anything can and does happen in court. In this case a commercial vessel with paying passengers failing to maintain any kind of watch. The limitations should be thrown out for failing the basic practice of maintaining an anchor watch. Further a paid professional crew heard something and fail to look. The judgment and liability will exceed the owners asset value and underwriter limits.

    There is very real world data on how long it takes to empty a commercial plane. Real research, real planning, real training, real history.

    Commercial Vessel, tens of paid passengers. NO ONE AWAKE on watch. Anchor watch is the standard and known safety practice.

    The surviving crew reports they were all asleep in the wheelhouse when they awoke to a fully involved cabin/main deck fire. These are three deck boats. If that is fact. The Captain will be roasted for failure to post a anchor or deck watch.

    Maybe Congress and CNN media will get involved and force all boats to have two massive glass wheelchair size GTFO ports. So much for the wide booty low profile designs. How many will drown in a seaway when those exits ports fail under slamming wave loads? Why do we allow narrow root keels that every. engineer knows will never stand the test of time?
