Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Our buddy, Chef, has taken on the mission to preserve the Captain's dignity until all the facts are known. He's as entitled to that mission as most of us are entitled to point out how stupid the Capt was.

There is a saying in flying. You're only as good as your last landing. And it's true. I've never had a passenger that felt otherwise. Bird stike, get us on the ground alive. Engine failure, get us on the ground alive. etc. etc. That's your job as Captain and why we don't aim the pointy end at a thunderstorm, let alone a hurricane, even if we've survived a pop up storm before.

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