Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty

Unfortunately commercial airline Captains are only as good as there last landing. That is what they are judged on. If after 30 years with a stellar piloting record, they screw up and crash a plane due to their own negligence, they are done. The US Navy practices the same policy for their ship Captains.

I guess tall ship Captains should be judged differently.
