Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
From what I understand the Bounty should have notified the CG that they had lost generators, pumps and engines.
Are we (as pleasure boaters) required to notify CG if our engine fails on our sailboat? Should we notify if our bilge pump fails while at sea? I could see if conditions are rough (high winds and seas) where the loss could endager boat and crew it would be wise to issue a Pan Pan to CG and keep them informed, but is this required during benign conditions?
