Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I have only watched a little of the CG investigation, and read most of the recaps here on SN.

Most have commented the crew was inexperienced.

I watched the testimony by the young lady (deck hand with 100 Ton license) and I was pretty impressed by her experience and how she delt calmly with the abandoning of the ship. I would not call her inexperienced. She also seems to be able to deal with mechanical issues quite well.

Did anyone see what her thoughts were on leaving port and trying to skirt Sandy?
