Re: An Informed Opinion about the Bounty
You really need to read Kübler-Ross. The acceptance is the acceptance of the fact that Wallbridge and Christian are dead and the grievers are able to move on with thier lives. Again, not to be so touchy-feely, but reading all these messages, I'm thing few, if any have been able to progress all the way to stage five. I can't quite figure out where you fit in the stages as you move back and forth a lot (regression isn't good mental health). But I suspect that you have move past stage five and now are just "pulling my leg" or "tweaking my nose" or whatever the Aussie idiom is.
I am still wondering about the more arcaine business aspects of this are. Who actually owned the HMS Bounty II? was it Walbridge? Insurance is a different can of worms. I know of at least two two master mariner boats in San Francisco where thier insurance is void if they are damaged in winds over 25kts. As far a movie props went, it did a lot of ocean sailing in fifty years before she was done in by a hurricane.
