Single Handing to Hawaii almost seems perfectly safe in comparison. Time to install a vane on the transom and go?

Yeah. Right....

High risk - high reward.
They could lose the net or even the boat by doing nothing and possibly perish in those conditions.

Plus, everybody there is after fast big money. Say the Arctic Wind made $500,000 from that one catch of cod. Probably 2/3 would go to the boat and expenses, leaving $20-25,000 per crew member for just that couple of weeks.
