Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Maybe I missed it in all the post. This is what the Capt stated he was trying to do:

“We run into stormy seas. We chase hurricanes,” Walbridge said. “You try and get up as close to the eye of it as you can and you stay down in the southeast quadrant and when it stops, you stop. You don’t want to get in front of it. You want to stay behind it. But you also get a good ride out of the hurricane.”

Many posts ago I think it was decided Walbridge was either mis quouted or twisted his words around, either way the thought was he meant the southwest quadrant where there would be following winds and seas.

Was this ever brought up in the current hearings?
