This is to Teresa Mars who keeps refering to the captain being in the lifeboat when the Wavedancer capsized.
I don't know where you get that from. He had just exited the main salon and was on his way to the bridge and was metres away from where most of the passengers were in the salon.
He then got all the passengers on the surface into the life raft and then swam across the channel, against their pleads to stay with him to the shore where he returned with a crew member of the Aggressor and rescued the 3 surviving passengers, he then went back and got the crew. He also freedived inside the vessel and pulled 2 bodies out and placed 6 bodies into the other liferaft and swam it across the channel. Glen Prillaman was also pulled out of the water by the captain and given mouth to mouth.
I am just curious where you get your information from as it seems a lot of your facts are incorrect. My condolences for your loss.
