Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I can say I am truly saddened by this. I was on the boat a year or two ago, and thought the crew was great. They were friendly and after talking to one of them for a while the let me go into the "non public" areas. It was interesting and I did not see any rotted wood, but they said it had just had a major refit and I would not know what to look for if it was neatly painted over as I have never owned a wood boat. The crew while a bit odd and "hippie-sh" bit were a hoot to spend a few hours with. I have followed the boat on Facebook since.

I am confident the captain did what he thought was best for the crew and boat at the time. It is unfortunate it did not turn out better.
