Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

So why in the world would they have set out to sea in the face of a hurricane, something none of us with any common sense would even consider? Maybe a false sense of invincibility, coerced to keep a schedule, incompetence, a plan to collect insurance gone awfully awry? What a sad, sad, needless, and tragic story.
