Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
1. Only 15 % of the seams were re-caulked for the whole boat. After the boat was hulled out, there were 4 to 5 weeping area from the hull.
2. Crews did decent job to repair the seams.
3. Above waterline and deck, bad shape and need repair, Upside, only 6 years old, but excessive decay.
4. Planking decayed from inside to about 2/3 of the plank
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
