If so that would be blaming him for letting Walbrige sail out to an Hurricane. All evidence points in that sense but no factual prove yet.

Yep. As this unfolds there will be lots of blaming and finger pinting and ass covering, Thats apparent. Therewill be other things to maybe learn as well as think about changing along with the obvious blame thats afixed to Walbridge for taking the vessel out in the face of a hurricane.

The owner who lurks in the backround here influence and authority in the upkeep of the Bounty as well as the pressures he applied will come into focus more clearly.
