Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
.......Some of the facts that have emerged do seem to give credence to the argument that Bounty had survived more intense conditions in the past. As we try to speculate on what happened, these mitigating facts may shed some light on the captain's thinking at the time.
More intense than a Category 1 hurricane? And that's the crux of the complacency argument, it's not speculation.
