Timeline of the Bounty

If you've followed the testimony at the hearing on the Bounty's sinking, this won't be surprising. It does reinforce the need for a Pan-Pan if things are not going well and early enough so that the CG and others know the full extent of the situation. It's probably a bit late when the boat is flooding up to the soles and the pumps aren't working, and not very accurate to say the "ship is fine".
