I'm pretty stunned from everything said yesterday. Well, not stunned that there was damage, but the extent.. even more than I knew of as a sailor but one that hadn't crewed with Bounty. What did make me think.. the USS Constellation in Baltimore was condemned in the 90s due to a 36 inch hog (she is a much larger ship than Bounty as well, and built in 1851), and when it was decided she would be restored, there were cables from one end of the ship to the other literally holding her together.
Of course, she hadn't actively been sailing in a century, and hadn't been in open waters in 50 or so years, either..
No live streamed video since the lunch break at noon. Now is 2:24 pm, is me or affect others too??
Nope, friends already contacted WAVY and they're working on it. I am following the Twitter pages of two reporters there than seem to be only adding a little sensationalism, but helps to keep up with the proceedings.
