Re: HMS Bounty (replica) has sunk....
said by ekster:Trying to out run or "get around" a hurricane in a sailing vessel???????
Claudia McCann, whose husband is the captain of the Bounty, said she hadn't slept since she received word the ship was taking on water.
She said her husband, Captain Robin Walbridge, was trying to get around Hurricane Sandy en route to Florida.
"He was just trying to avoid it, skirt it. Skirt through it, skirt around it," McCann said Monday.
"I'm sure he's devastated. Absolutely devastated. But the crew comes first and you have to save the crew."
I would think twice about that in a freakin' battleship!
