Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I am thinking to really "sail" that slug of a ship HMS Bounty "movie version" you may need a hurricane to get any kind of speed. Otherwise you would normally just run the twin diesels. Maybe that is why the Capt seeked to find hurricanes in which to "sail", that is what the ship required.
