    Hard to say what he was thinking exactly, but I think that he was falling back on the "navigable semi-circle" idea.

    With the forecasts saying that Sandy was to move west, and the sheer size of the storm, he should never had put himself between the coast and the storm where there was no where to run. That course change on Saturday was his fatal mistake. He should have gone to New Bedford, but since he left port, he should have run East like nearly every other ship on the coast of the time and just put as many NM between him and the storm as he could.
