Since I did not watch the beginning, what I did see was mainly on the inadequacy or lacking of safety measure on the ship and that there seemed to be two conflict aftermath reports and therefore coverup was alleged. What I was somewhat disappointed was that there's very little discussion on the rogue wave aspect and what was actually happened. I got the impression that rogue wave was even generally dismissed as a cause of this tragic case. Of course if there was a cover-up, one can not help but share the angry and anguish of Laura's father, the legendary hockey great Bob Gainey, and this his heartsick comment:
Perhaps life jackets would be wise. Perhaps harnesses would be wise.While I feel the CBC program seems to be only aimed at fixing blames on the company, I do also feel strongly that there is just no excuse for not requiring every one on board to wear life jacket or harness.
On the web site of Picton Castle there's a special web section called "Tribute for Laura" where I found the following poem:
From a former shipmate:
A Prayer for Laura
Sleep my little sister lost in the eternal womb of the sea.
Free from toil and strife, forever engraved in my memory
with the timeless beauty of one taken far too soon.
Journey my little sister lost to that undiscovered country
where the quick cannot land.
Your spirit soars at my masthead as the black crested seabird
showing me the way home.
Be at peace my little sister lost until that end of days when
all sailors are called home from the sea.
When once again we will rejoice in the company of shipmates
long departed and sorely missed.
Be at peace.
