Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

My bet is that the inquiry will find evidence that the ship was not seaworthy and that it basically leaked, became uncontrollable because the bilge was full of water, and sank. The captain, primarily, and everyone else in the corporate chain of command, would be responsible for choosing to take a ship in such condition into a hurricane, or anywhere else for that matter.
