Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Imagine a public letter of indignation and ridicule addressed to a dead man. That indisputably was all for public show. I hope some day since I live in Baltimore to see him as the Pride of Baltimore is often docked at Inner Harbor and there are functions. I will say that to his face. I have already written and sent a letter to him about his public self serving display to bring attention to himself.
Like I said already:
I feel sorry for those captains being dragged into this.
It's a no-win situation that certainly isn't going to help their business prospects other than to attract visitors interested, not in their ship and the sailing experience, but only in asking personal questions about a old collegue of theirs whose ship sank in a storm...
