Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I had not watched it until about an hour ago, because I was too busy at work. I don't know all the characters, but can kind of figure out who they are from their self-serving questions.

I was impressed with the candor of Laura's testimony, and how she did not allow them to lead her. I suspect that she must be under quite a bit of pressure, as certain attorneys are probably trying to build a case for a liability case against everyone, including crew members -- although I suspect that the crew members don't have very "deep pockets." I also don't know whether the maritime limitations apply to crew members also, or just the owner of ship.
