    I'm guessing only one hand was lost? Doesn't say, and there's nop account of the survival and rescue of the others in the piece. Gripping.

    Went down with all hands, including a classmate of my brother from the Maine Maritime Academy who was on his first voyage. Tragic would be the word I would choose.

    An accident is always due to a chain of events. Break one link and it doesn't happen.
    Tightfisted company, substandard ship and a captain with something to prove.
