"...filing a lawsuit under a pre-Civil War provision of maritime law that allows it to limit its liability." Don't know all the details on this, but seems like if you start with something like this you are pretty much admitting guilt and just throwing a hail nary.

Useful to know for the next time we travel by boat: the owners can legally shirk any responsibility.

Every article says fire. But you know it sounds more like an explosion. It sounds like the boat blew up leaving zero time for people to escape.
