Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Since most of us are in agreement that Tall ships are not the same as the giant sailing government vessels we see in the OP sails etc, how can we govern them.

We have a class C tall ship in our marina/ Witchcraft (60 ft) which is classified as a type C tall ship built in 1902. It goes out a sails just like I do and I have been on her sailing many times. I have posted a few of the tall ships which participated in OP Sail Baltimore this summer. Some are the goverment vatiety, some are privately owned

How can you regulate them? Carrying passangers I am sure is one of the delinaiations. How can you prevent a privately owned craft from going to sea? It would have to more than the basic sailing equipment we are required to carry of course.

None of this exonerates the sailing into a hurricane of course.
