Should the Bounty Have Set Sail?

Please click on this ^ link to see the article.

Many people have been debating whether or not the HMS Bounty should have set sail knowing that it would be heading directly toward hurricane Sandy. I discussed the sinking in a previous blog post (https://bythepathlesstraveled.wordpress.com/2012/10/31/reflecting-on-the-sinking-of-the-hms-bounty-and-photo-tour-of-the-ship/), but this is an excellent article to read for more details about what went into that decision as well as whether or not Captain Walbridge was a qualified captain for the 180-foot, three-masted tall ship.

I HIGHLY suggest that people read this article. It’s fantastic.
