Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Someplace in this thread is a quote from Walbridge talking about how he intended to skirt around Sandy. That reminded me a lot of watching him in the video, like he had this foolproof method. At least one of the crew said he had been through two hurricanes with Walbridge. I also remember reading a quote from one of the crew saying Walbridge told the crew what he was planning to do and if anyone didn't want to go, he would understand. So there is certainly some evidence there was intent to sail towards a hurricane when he left New London.
