Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

His tesimony may be quite damning, but must be taken with a grain of salt, he is basically claiming he told the captain the vessel was unseaworthy and felt that was the end of his responsibility. I dont know that I beleive him. Hopefully there were others present when he did to corroborate his testimomny. I am suprise that walberg is the only one he is telling this to.

The only caveat is that is would be in his and his bosses best interest to cover their asses and throw the blame on Walberg so that no one says what the repair was wasnt adequate and thats why the ship took on water.

It is easy to jump at each piece as it occurs in real time. Prudence says let it all unfold first, although this is damning.
