Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Even my friend Walbridge appears to have been so involved with his own dream of the wooden sailing boats and teaching others his craft, he seems to have lost the ability to recognize the limits of this vessel......
I guess you are close to the truth. Not only wooden Ships, he loved that particular ship and love can alienate reason and make us do stupid and irrational things. Would we not be able to do irresponsible and dangerous things to save our boat? I am not sure but I am sure I would never put my crew or family in danger.
Anyway there is a big difference here: He was a professional Captain and had a crew to his responsibility. His first concern should always be regarding the crew not the Ship.
