Well, I certainly would not have sailed on a wooden XVII designed ship to an hurricane path unless at gun point. I surely would steep back of that boat and would voice loudly my opinion regarding the insanity of doing that even at a cost of being called a coward and knowing perfectly well that nobody would listen to me. At least I would have tried
