Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Its funny I am incredulous that people say the crew didnt know the hurricane was coming. They were getting texts from all their friends and loved ones and everyone on the east coast starting the previous Sunday started watching the storm Oct 24 when it ewas classified as a hurricane and started its trip north. The European model had it pegged from the beginning to come up the coast and them turn west into the land. It took a couple days but the American model agreed. I knew I might be in trouble in Maryland long before the Bounty slipped its lines and started preparing as did olthers in my area in Maryland.

What I agree is that they really didnt understand what that meant, how bad the ship was and placed trust in each other and the Captain. To say they didnt know doesnt seem plausable.
