Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
According to Walbridge's wife, he has sailed in many huricanes, and she brings up the East side of the cane again? Look here:

"But he would like hurricanes because they pushed him, they made him go fast. And he's been in many hurricanes. I mean, I can't even count the number of hurricanes he's been in."
McCann said her husband had been trying to navigate around the storm "and get on the east side of it, which is what he did do."
Is she referring to a snowstorm in the midwest at that time, or something?
