Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Agree. And with all the electronic charts, navigation, gps trackers, sat phones and e-mail, weather routing, weather forcasting, power winches, rolling furler and reefing mains on boats now, it is easy for a non experienced sailor (with a lot of money) to purchase a large well equiped boat and go out and get themselves into real trouble.
Or more likely not to be in trouble but to think he is in trouble or even more likely his wife thinking they are in trouble
