@CreamFilling512: I still think that technology failed him (unless he ignored it), if you spot a lighthouse you know there is imminent danger thus steer away. That is unless he overrode the safety devices.

If so, then his bosses are to blame. Since he is "showing off" this has the net result of getting more customers excited about using the service. He should have been reprimanded the first time he showboated, the fact that this did not happen means the newspapers are trying to vilify someone in order to sell papers but the fault lies elsewhere. In a murder investigation, culpable Confederates are always sought, this tragedy is the fault of more than 1 person, including the vice-captain and all their management.
