Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Chef kind of touched on my question earlier when he mentioned not enough qualified/trained crew... How many crew(qualified) should a ship of this size have had realistically? 16 total crew members seems kind of small in my mind. Then you factor in the weather, their actual skill levels, and injuries...
1980 Compac 16
1983 Starwind 22 w/pop top
Trailer-sailing our way from Pennsylvania to Ontario Canada and soon the Chesapeake Bay!!!
