Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

From my understanding, the ship was supposed to be in St. Petersburg, along with the Picton Castle. Right?

The captain said he wanted to get to the southeast quadrant of hurricane Sandy.

Where would the ship have to be to make the southeast quadrant of hurricane Sandy? The storm was huge. So to get to that point, wouldn't Walbridge have to take the ship considerably out of the way, on his trip to St. Petersburg, to reach the southeast quadrant of the storm? Once you've squeezed past the western edge, why would you circle around the southern edge, then head east, to get to the southeast quadrant if your destination was St. Petersburg?

Am I missing something here?
