The took this mans boat over when there really was no imminent danger been proved. Just they were " uncomfortable" The water issue is a straw argument

I would be careful ever including either of the, as crew to a race offshore or even a cruise lest their mutinous history repeat itself. They take no responsibility so they are bound to repeat their actions.
Yes, that is a tough part for me to swallow. For crew to take over the vessel, well, that just cannot happen unless extreme measures needed to be taken. But this wasn't a true mutiny...was it? RD was very colorful and brutal in his writing but I took his use of "mutiny" with a grain of salt. Disobeying orders is not mutiny. They didn't take his vessel. Am I looking at this all wrong?
