HMS Bounty in trouble...


I think I understand your concern for the dignity of those lost. However, you ironically tried and convicted all those that you've accused of trying and convicting Bounty.

Some feel, like I do, that the loss of human life was avoidable in this circumstance and discussing it is not as reprehensible as some feel. I recall the exact prediction on the day they departed CT. I hauled out the day before. This novice crew would have been influenced by the Captains decision making. There didn't need to be a gun to their heads. If my daughter were aboard, I would be doing more than just simply analyzing a decision making process at this point. I think you would too.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
