If Todd Tholke was a real sailor he would have brought the French AC boat Energy back after it broke its mooring and gracefully accepted the French’ gratitude for bringing her back safely. The French on their part could certainly have offered to recompense Tholke for fuel and any damage that his boat might have incurred in towing the French boat back. I smell a rat. Hearing stories of US attorneys lurking around hospitals eager to “assist” victims of crime or accident suing potentially rich insurance companies in the fond hope that they collect a tidy sum themselves in a deal with the victim. Who approached who? Did attorney John Edgcomb smell money and suggested a 50/50 split of the proceeds. Whatever happened, Tholke would be wise to stay away from the real sailors among us. They would not look too kindly on this.
