Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

they were never IN a hurricane. never. they wer e WEST of the hurricane and AST of a strong cold front, that was merging with the hurricane. if you GO TO BOUNTY'S FB AN DWEB PAGES you will see the path exactly between the two fronts. no steep seas and winds were only 40 mph, as per the rescue scene. where the two fronts have meeting winds, is a space not wide , to be able to use for a time.
please read bounty's sites and see what he was doing and what exactly happened. if you noticed in some videos of the bounty, her hatches were open, causing ingress of plenty of water. her sailing in a sea fast is a twisty action on the hull-- therefore need for pumps in any wood ship. is most important tool in wood boat--pumps and extra pumps.
answer your questions, as i answered mine -- read the pages written by the team receiving the info from the ship as they had problems. is posted in both sites.
