I know what I would do, I will walk because I am old and have thick skin and I don't care much about peer pressure.
However, these young men and young women are so in love with he boat and the captain. I don't think they knew what is coming. I remember Laura said in her testimony when Bounty sailed from Booth Bay to New London, the pump kicked on every 20 minutes. When sailing to south into Sandy, the pumps were on consistently. The crews did not find it abnormal, becasue the captain said, it is a wooden boat.
I guess Love is blind.
I read, think, and act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest, nor I am here for free sex. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of safe off-shore passage. I am NOT afraid of dying in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school; doing the right even when no one is watching is important to me.
