I have & know exactly what he means.
Flemish Cap mid-December is something you cannot comment on unless you have been there & done it!!
That said, I have had dealings with Captain Dan Moreland, years prior to the Gainey incident & he is nothing short of an arrogant, ass covering, short sighted slug as a human being.
I have only have a small taste of the Atlantic having made two crossings by ship in March and November. Even with that I almost slid off the deck during a rain storm. Still scares the crap out of me.
I don't question for a minute the hazards that should be expected. I do question lack of respect for those hazards by the folks operating the Picton Castle. If everything was done properly I think that BG and family would have accepted this tragedy much earlier.
