Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I don't think we know what alternative offer was made to the crew, but the peer pressure argument is likely to stand, in my opinion.

At best, they were told they would keep their job, be put in a hotel, flown to FL and rejoin the crew. So, one would have to think what that would be like. To potentially rejoin a crew that just survived a hurricane and you didn't have the cajones to go along.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
