Vessel design and poor handling caused the capsizing of the Ryan’s Commander that claimed the lives of two Newfoundland fishermen, a federal report concludes.  The Transportation Safety Board of Canada also found that communications between two federal departments remains so strained that crew safety is at risk.  Brothers Joe and Dave Ryan died when their vessel overturned off Cape Bonavista on Sept. 19, 2004, only months after it was completed.
