Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
C'mon Jon! You know! In this country experienced means having done something for a long time. How well that person does it does not take away from he or she being experienced.
In my opinion there are exceptions but as a rule an experienced professional sailor deserves more credit than an amateur one and a Professional Tall Ship Captain deserves a lot more credit than a professional sailor, even a tall ship sailor.
A Tall ship Captain credit in what regards this is only comparable to the opinion of Naval Designers with experience on this type of ships. Maybe a tall ship NA deserves even more credit than a tall ship Captain in what regards the credibility of his opinion.
