The vessel would never have passed any USCG inspections without operational extinguishers! There may have been an internal fire suppression system, not stand alone tank type extinguishers (so one wouldn't have been visible to a casual observer).

Apparently the sister of the woman mentioned in this article, who declined to give her last name.

What the heck? So let me get this straight. 39 people were jammed on one small 75 foot boat. When the fire broke out the crew immediately abandoned ship and left the passengers trapped and possibly locked below deck.

Somebody is going to get charged big time for this. I guess I now know how to make money fast. Buy a little boat. Pack it with as many bunk beds as will fit, and start charging top dollar for scuba tours. Then just rake in the millions.

I have not read any details that would lead me to make any determination of liability.

A 75 foot boat is pretty big, and it can well accommodate 39 people, I think i read this one in particular can accommodate 46 or so people.

There is so much ignorance in this post I do not know where to start.

Again, the way boats are set up, crew quarters are in a different place than guest quarters. You cannot access guest from crew. It would have been much easier and quicker escape from crew quarters.
