Re: SEACOR never received USCG WX Warning

Would not have mattered if they did. If you donít go, they just find another captain. I posted on this sad event at the time it happened and did not get a lot of replies on the forum.
Iíve been co-captain on Bollinger 200í leg lift boats...more like sailing. The captain could have lowered the legs which would have improved stability but would have slowed them way down.
He could have turned back and looked for work with another company. USCG is not your only source of weather information out there.
Even with every door tight, legs up is real dangerous. Every lift boat crew knows that fact. Get it done or get off the boat.
People die every day for oil...there is no stopping consumption.
We live in a sad world.
Captain Mark
