Many things may be in doubt, who said what and when to who. But there are some facts that are not in dispute. 1. The Bottom Scratcher approached a boat close enough to have a conversation.
2. Divers were in the water.
3. Dive flag was up
4. Bottom Scratcher should never have approached close enough to even have asked the question.
5. The photo clearly shows a boat way too close.
6. Insulting the wife was not called for and out of line, particularly for someone in the service industry. Bad form old boy.
The captain should, particularly as a dive boat operator, have observed the diver down flag and respected it.
