Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I can't imagine anything coming from the investigation that could result in me saying, "Okay, now I see why he had to set sail in the direction of a hurricane. Not his fault." I haven't seen anything written here and I've racked my brain to figure what could have possibly compelled him to set sail. And I have yet to read one comment, anywhere, that says, "Yeah, given what we all knew at the time, I can see heading out to sea like he did," or anything even close to that.

We know when he set sail there was a hurricane thrashing the Bahamas. He knew of the hurricane. (If he didn't he should never have been a captain of that ship.) We know his destination was Florida and that he headed south. What more could possibly come out of the investigation that could exonerate him from blame?
