Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Yes in what regard to rescues not in what regards deep water boat rescues that imply search time, considerable time travel and lots of resources.
I saw those and understood that they are talking about all rescues and did not discriminate the ones that are not on the beach or very neat the coast, with swimmers, small dingy or fishermen that fall on the rocks and so on. I wonder how many were due to these circumstances and how many were due to deep sea rescues and then I saw that the British coast guard, that has similar statistics, have a map that is enlightening about where the vast majority of those accidents and rescues take place:
That was not the kind of accidents I was talking about or the ones that interested me, than I keep on searching and the best I could find in what regards that kind of accidents was this chart, that I have already posted:
Seems your data shows a lot more rescues are occuring. What is the difference between the red and blue bars, legend is partly cut off.
