Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

More conflicting data!? The ULS Universal Licensing System data states the ship was 55 metres (or 180 ft). ULS License - Ship Compulsory Equipped License - WDD9114 - HMS BOUNTY ORGANIZATION LLC...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I totally agree it sounds incredible, and is only being discussed because the available data gives us that 3 hr figure of 19 kts:
2012-Oct-28 13:33 N 34°38' W 073°21' 58[nm] 19.1[kts]

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I think they got pretty much run over by the worst of Sandy. If you look at the plots, the track lines intersect sometime between Sunday & Monday. Without a more exact plot of positions & times, it...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I posted this earlier:

I'm thinking she wasn't in the stream during the worst of it. She sailed south to cross the stream, and...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

On Facebook it clearly states: "Bounty in high seas sailing from Maine to Puerto Riico in 2010". Just posted to demonstrate Bounty coping with high seas.

The photo shows the ship on port tack,...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Some data which might explain the vessels abrupt change of course from S to SW on the 27th: this shows that they only changed course towards the SW after they were clear of the Gulf Stream. It looks...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Sal,

I guess I'm just trying to find some explanation how they came to the decision on the 27th to change course from their most easterly position since sailing south, to head SW across the...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Agreed. SW. Trying to make sense of this course in the context of the weather forecasts available (once they were already committed and out at sea), the first time that the Advisories made any...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Correct. The use of compass terms here doesn't help pin point the so-called "navigable" semicircle. The SE quadrant is only the area of more favourable, lighter winds/seas in a system heading from...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

So if 12 knots was a possible top speed, and they were in, say, a five knot current, then 2 knots of added surfing speed over the ground might just be possible! It must have been extreme to say the...

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

If you look at the position log available via the Bounty website (tallshipbounty) - (current location) it seems that from 10:31 to 13:33 on the 28th Oct, the ship covered 58nm at an average speed of...

By the way, is S/Y Nancy Ellen really still out there, about half way, tabbing along at just over 2 kts, or is that a transponder glitch?
