Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Yes he is talking about the shocking degradation (rot) of the wood on the side planking. He differentiated between rot ( fresh water) with spores and other rot. Only way to fix is to replace. He recommended to Walbridge to replace all. Walbridge replaced some, but wanted to wait until the next haul

When asked if he told CG at the next inspection he said no. He said he told his boss.
