I'll be the mean hearted cynic. I read the owner is a writer, and is writing or just finished a book about a boater who is rescued at sea by a cruise ship
when he runs into trouble. IF that is so maybe a big PR stunt? Head
out on the water
along the cruise
ships routes see one coming hail it and be "rescued" it looked to me the dinghy
was still with them. Lose a a trawler
(Insured?) but get a million in free publicity! Remember "Baloon Boy"
My apologies in advance in case I am mistaken.
