Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Quote:
The Herald Sun reported that when asked by the announcer if any ships would venture out in Hurricane Sandy, his answer was, ‘No way,’' and he continued, 'Only large ships like aircraft carriers can manage that kind of storm in that area. I was so surprised when the news flashed about the Bounty.'
The US Navy sent many ships out to sea from Norfolk smaller than aircraft carriers

Quote:

'I think he had a schedule and was trying to outmaneuver the storm,' Tougias said. "
This quote is conjecture obviously a nd should be discounted


Two mistakes in one

Anyway we all agree the Captain should not have sailed.
