I am disappointed by the classlessness of many of the comments here. You guys have the unique opportunity to ask real questions of someone who has been close to the captain and crew for 17 years, and to actually learn something, and you're blowing it because you are so convinced of the "rightness" of the artificially synthesized "facts" that you've been echoing back and forth to each other for the past 6 weeks.
Seems you missed my point. Just because the Capt/crew of Bounty makes a statement does not mean it's true. Take the statements "a ship if safer at sea than in port". That has been proven false.

Imagine if every boat along the east coast had gone to sea prior to hurricane Sandy. How many more boats and people would have been lost?

Eye witnesses are the worst evidence in the court of law.
