Martin, those guys wouldn't have gotten off the ship IMO. The boats tell me that the davits were old rule, they wouldn't been able to launch with the list. Maybe not with modern davits either, they would have been in liferafts. When we go to sea, we accept risks that are unacceptable in any other industry. Sea going personnel are the most fatalistic people I know, one bad moment and and that's it, hopefully you can get into an immersion suit so your body can be found for your family.
JJ is completely right. No body cares except for the families, replacements are available with a call to a agent and insurance covers the equipment.
