Whose fault is it that the divers trusted Peter Hughes?...

I can understand the surviving family members want to blame Hughes for the deaths of their loved ones. But whose fault is it that they booked a trip with Peter Hughes? As I said in the Aggressor forum, everybody knows there are problems with the way fleet boats are operated. Who forced the Richmond Dive Club to go diving with Hughes? Who forced them to sign the liability releases? Who forced them to leave their common sense at home when they went to Belize? Who forced them to stay on the boat when one of the crew actually did the right thing and simply walked off and went to safe shelter.
