Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Regardless of the condition of the boat, it's suitability for the conditions, etc., the initial decision to put to sea on Thursday, when the track, breadth and strength of the storm was well known, was the biggest mistake.

Putting to sea during a hurricane is sometimes yadda yadda yadda, but saving the boat doesn't appear to have been the motivating factor in this case.
Life is too short to sail ugly boats.
