Well so far we have heard nothing further from the FWC about their examination of the boat returned to Florida. It would tend to appear that there was in fact no indication of foul play in the loss of the two young men. One has to conclude therefore that it was a tragic boating accident with two persons missing as first thought.
One might mention that while lawyers have their place particularly in the American system of sueing for everything possible it is sometimes best if they do not make statements on a subject which are inaccurate and merely show that they in fact know little or nothing about that subject matter. Perhaps we could use in our legal system a protocol which disciplines lawyers when they do this type of "ambulance chasing" it would improve the legal system and most importantly ease the pain of already suffering families. Just a thought !
A container ship arrived in Port Everglades, FL on Sunday and amongst its cargo is the boat belonging to the two boys lost 10 months ago. It is due to be unloaded on Monday afternoon and NAUTICAL LOG will have more information later.
A lawyer retained by one of the families has suggested that there be a "proper forensic examination" of the boat. The FWC had stated they would "take a look" at the boat no doubt if there were any suspicious indicators a full forensic examination would take place. This incident is still listed as a boating accident with two missing persons.
However one must remember that this event happened 10 months ago and during that period the boat drifted in the Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Drift Current to the vicinity of Bermuda.
