Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Saying that the hull leaks killed the crew of Bounty is like saying the knife killed the stabbing victim. It was the device, not the cause.
I am not saying the captain was correct in his actions to sail the ship into hurricane sandy.
What I am saying is the ship was a disaster waiting to happen for many many years. It seemed many people and organizations seemed to be in love with the Bounty and as we know, love is blind.
