      There was a case in New Jersey a
    couple of years ago where a 40' sport fisherman ran down a 19' open
    boat, killing the latter's three occupants.   The skipper had his boat
    on autopilot and "went below to get a cup of coffee."  Subsequent
    reconstruction of the accident proved that he was below, with nobody
    keeping watch, for at least 15 minutes.

    Wasn't there a brand-new Winnebargo owner who did the same thing? Attained cruising altitude and speed, engaged auto-throttle and wandered down the back to make a cuppa. After the accident he successfully sued Winnebargo, as it had not warned him that this would be an unwise procedure.
