    Dive boat conception investigation

    A finding of accidental does not imply or negate gross negligence on the part of the boat owner or crew. Also from some research I did on another matter, it appears that death by carbon monoxide poisoning is painful. The research was for methods to dispatch pests in California and carbon...

    What you would want is appreciating assets, not a boat which is the antithesis of an appreciating asset.

    WTB Sea Squirt Help.

    Had a 1980 16.5" Sea Squirt for 10 years. Great bay boat and just the right size for towing down Baja. Great for 2 but I think 3 would crowd it.

At the end of day three I removed the 1st patch and applied the second patch behind the other ear. It evidently provided me with a massive amount of...

    Seaman’s Manslaughter

    I would think that the captain would be liable regardless of the crew disobeying orders for a roving watch. The captain is responsible for the actions of the crew with the possible exception of mutiny on the part of the crew.

    Seaman’s Manslaughter

    It is very possible that one or more tried to get out but succumbed to smoke inhalation. It is common in building fires to find bodies of people who almost made it out but died of smoke inhalation. I seem to recall reading that smoke inhalation is the most common cause of death in building...

    Seaman’s Manslaughter

    To answer questions about the fire extinguishers, in addition to the automatic engine room the Conception was required to carry 5 portable units. See the attached Certificate of Inspection.

    Seaman’s Manslaughter

    The USCG has regs relative to fire extinguishers for non-commercial boats so I would assume that they have regs for commercial boats. To determine what the regs require is where I would begin my study of this issue.
