A bit of a different note...but the book " Dead men tapping " has one big similarity...and is another one that should be on every mariners to read listThank you. I know the story well. No it is not on cable. Also, the book "The sea shall free them" by Robert Frump tells the whole story. I womt' post it here so to spoil it for those who have the chance to watch the movie. Many things came out of that tragedy. Some being Immersion suits for everyone on board, Rescue swimmers on USCG rescue helicopters and much more. If the rest of the story is told on that series you will see Insurance company's involved. And more. You will see how little men really mean over the bottom line.
That book is /(Should be ) on any seaman's read list.
