Another FV death trap

Post by JK »

about 10 years ago or so, I decided to post all of the fishing vessel accidents I heard about, because the level of incompetence involved was stunning and same thing was happening over and over again. By incompetence, I don't mean seamanship, but the more technical aspects of taking a boat to sea like stability. I gave up on it because it was obvious nothing would change as TC seemed to bow to the industry.
Here is another sinking in the US that was preventable. Everyone will wring their hands and send TP but will things really change?
