I did t want to foul up the conception thread with this.
But we all know the 100t Master of a small passenger vessel is currently in deep shit.
He worked for many years for a small but reputable tour boat company, who left it pretty much up to him. Regulations were reportedly not complied with.
Some posters have raised points about how much authority did the master really have.
And what would have happened if he exercised his authority.
I don’t know those answers,
We all know with hindsight he was in the wrong, the regulations were not complied with.
As for what if any repercussions may occur to the owner.
Well reputation wrecked business is closed. Potential charges must be a concern. None yet.
So my question,
What kind of response have you had, if and when you have made Captain like decisions.
Is it something you worry about.
In particular have you ever been concerned about repercussions.
