Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
This is expected that he will speak for the best interest of the shipyard. But I hope he would not lied under oath. His testimony is still very valuable and the condition of the boat was bad shape when she leave the Boothbay shipyard.
He answered the question if the crews used DAP as chaulking below water line. And the shipyard does not use DAP for seams.
Captain told the owner to get rid of the boat asap, Captain fears of lawsuit.
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.
