Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Sanderson testifyimng. He was in the engine room the whole time till the water shorted out all of the generators. He recounted changing filters...losing the battle against the rising water. Changing filters fir the generators. He addressed the issue of the floting pices of wood clogging the intakes and said it wasnt a real problem. He kept the the ends of the dewatering equipment under the water. he also spoke about the last time he saw Christine and Walbridge after they abandoned ship.

He also spoke about being in the water being hard to clear the rigging on the ship and then the final rescue, cllimpbing on the life raft.
