The same article was used here 3 million posts ago (hyperbole) as a supposedly authoritve source on the question of the possibility that the Harbor Master might have requested Bounty to leave the port. (Neff has a part-time position marketing/managing some city owned moorings, and is not employed by the Port Authority of New London).
If someone was talking to you about the way he was going to maneuver an Hurricane and you were part of the crew that was going to do it I bet that one month later you would remember very well that talk. There are some conversations that are irrelevant and we forget quickly but a talk about how you are going to sail an Hurricane? I guess that would be hard to forget
