Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

It is interesting that every dimension of Bounty II was significantly larger that that of the original except the draught which was about 14 feet for each vessel. I could make all sorts of guesses as to what this could mean to the stability of the ship but not being a marine architect, they wouldn't be worth much. Would like to an analysis of this from someone qualified to make it.
Also did not see in the specs whether the masts on BountyII were taller than those on the original. Anyone know?
