Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
The 1000 post deserves a statement
It is not really important who got first the general picture what is important is that in the end the general opinion on this forum is pretty much consensual and that is great
. I believe that this consensual position (that is similar to the one of the main professional sailing forums) will be globally the one that will be reached by the CG investigation, certainly reinforced by some missing facts that certainly will come to the light on the CG investigation. However it seems to me that the facts that we have already are enough to substantiate this consensus and to get a good idea of what have happened, not in the details but globally
Considering the amazing level of knowledge and experience that one finds on this forum, I can't imagine any other group of mariners could come up with better conclusions.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
