Again, the only "fact" here, is that it has been claimed the BOUNTY had sailed "in", or "though", at least 2 prior hurricanes (His wife has claimed the number was "too many to remember", but, hey - why quibble over numbers?) As I've stated about 300 posts ago (grin), I will be VERY surprised if we EVER learn the names, dates, or relative positions of those encounters... His claim that he experienced 70' seas from a storm a few hundred miles distant extablishes no "fact", other than the one that he was apparently talking out of his butt in making such a ridiculous claim..JonEisberg.
I totally agree thats why to build hypopthesis and theories on this unsubstantiated hyperbole or to continue using these statements in the explaination just leads to no credence in those theories.
