Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

My bet is that the inquiry will find evidence that the ship was not seaworthy and that it basically leaked, became uncontrollable because the bilge was full of water, and sank. The captain, primarily, and everyone else in the corporate chain of command, would be responsible for choosing to take a ship in such condition into a hurricane, or anywhere else for that matter.

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Here's an optimistic prediction that we'll get the USCG report by 12 July 2013.

Probably both the condition of the ship and the decision to sail will be criticized, and there will be some recommendations, at the very least, for similar replica ships that have so far escaped a fair amount of regulation.

That's the nice thing about corporations - no-one is responsible.

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I am thinking to really "sail" that slug of a ship HMS Bounty "movie version" you may need a hurricane to get any kind of speed. Otherwise you would normally just run the twin diesels. Maybe that is why the Capt seeked to find hurricanes in which to "sail", that is what the ship required.

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

The Weather Channel is airing a documentary on Rescuing the Bounty on Dec 5th at 8pm eastern.

The the Mayan's calendar says we're done on Dec 21st and I insist the official investigation be finished before then!

It has been determined the Mayan calender ends on Dec 21st because they ran out of good quality stone in which to carve the calender.

I'm sure that's true, but don't tell the investigators. They're probably betting they don't need to wrap this up.

Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Question:
When the next HMS Bounty is built for the movie "The Sinking of the Bounty" will this Bounty actually be sunk at the end of the movie, or will it be kept as a dock side attraction?

Thought the above amendment might drive the point even further.

However it seems to me that the facts that we have already are enough to substantiate this consensus and to get a good idea of what have happened, not in the details but globally.
Considering the amazing level of knowledge and experience that one finds on this forum, I can't imagine any other group of mariners could come up with better conclusions.
