Re: [bolger] H.M.S. Bounty Sunk!
- Back in the 70's (US Navy) we put out to sea from Jacksonville several times to ride out hurricanes. I would imagine it has quite a draft so running up a nearby river might not have been an option. Even so with 18' seas and 40 mph winds it justdoesn't seem like it should have been that big a problem.From: Ed Drapela <edrapela@...>

Call me old fashioned but isn’t that the mark of a Captain?From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of kayaker37
