That would be a nightmare. Sea temps like that would kill someone in just a few minutes. Hopefully her illness gave her a high fever.

It was bad procedure to not lash one vessel to the other. A transfer like this isn't like the Pilot jumping from one boat to another.

I hope she is now doing well.

Take care,

So sad to hear that.

It is a very sad story, and should not have happened.
