Yeah, it looks not that stable. And in fact, thats how they all went into the water, and how 2 people died - when the Bounty rolled over.SalParadise
At least be honest enough to print what you said......you said ROLLED OVER
According to the Coast Guard it did.
We’re still hopeful,” said Capt. Joe Kelly, commanding officer of the Elizabeth City Coast Guard Air Station. Walbridge and Christian were in the process of getting aboard the life rafts when the ship rolled, throwing them overboard, Kelly said.
They said rolled not rolled over
But Barksdale described how a large wave hit the ship, suddenly heeling the entire vessel over on its starboard side, masts in the water, and apparently throwing everyone into the sea.
Heeled is another sailing term thats doesnt mean rolled over
We just saw a video of Bounty, as John described it "rolling" . Two people died after they were thrown in the water when the ship rolled on its side. Not a rumor. A description.
Jon who self addmittedly uses his words carefully said rolled on its side not rolled over
Rolled Over is different than roll. In most instances I have heard relaing to sailing boats a roll over means the mast passes to a 180 degrees from upright.
A rollover is a type of vehicle accident in which a vehicle tips over onto its side or roof. The most common cause of a rollover is traveling too fast while turning
Either YOU exagerrated the phrase for effect and risked starting a rumor or were just ignorant of the differentce between rolled, heeled, and rolled over. I temd to think the first as you again write down the ENTIRETY of what you said in your weak defense.
Sal you tend to stretch the truth in your posts, you are the one who psoted the picture supposed of the last moments of the Bounty, but were FOUND OUT and had to retract, and when confronted got personal. Try and stay civil.
This incident is bad enough without creating an additon drama in it implicating the Bounty rolled over. Especially in light of the possibilty the lightened the ballast. Wont take long for the average person to draw a line between less balllast to the ship having rolled over ( which didnt occur)
