Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
The Navy sent all their vessels out from Norfolk in advance of the storm for the same reason - sometimes you're safer away from the dock!
In a square rigger? I don't think so. The Bounty wasn't exactly a guided missile cruiser, it was a 50 year old movie prop.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
