Appears he might have saved a few people

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

In my opinion, good thinking on behalf of the captain. He had his passengers lives in mind. Running it aground would not only prevent it from sinking, but would still allow water into certain shipboard systems that rely on it for cooling. If the passengers are enjoying breakfast while awaiting rescue, then they're OK. Ships can be replaced a lot easier than people.
