At least 4 captains of tall ships come forward saying that they did not understand the Bounty Captain decision to sail away from port to face an Hurricane. One of them had the ship on the same port where Bounty was and the ship did not suffer any damage with the bad weather.
Please name the ship you're talking about, the tall ship that was in New London at the time. I have been reading this thread (and the linked news media articles) carefully, hence just catching up. I have not seen any such report. The Picton Castle captain, who you have quoted about 37 times (exageration intentional), was in NOT in the same port. He wasn't even in the same country.
