Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I agree with Dave about the excessive captain-bashing. The video said it all. The caption on SA had it right. But this is a learning opportunity and will continue to be so as the facts emerge. People are interested because we are all threatened by storms. It's only natural to want to know what happened because it is much more personal and relevent to sailors than to those on land. Every sailor learns from these types of tragedies.
