HMS Bounty in distress

Man the life-boats

Women, children, Ipods and hermers first.
(Not necessarily in that order)

Sent from my BlackBerry 9800 using Crapatalk and a head dobber
There are 40mph winds and 18ft waves reported at the scene, which is 90 miles southeast of Hatteras in North Carolina.

Hardly fearsome weather for a square rigged ship.

Only 16 crew. Not enough to sail her properly even if they were experienced.
Not a nice place to be a life raft in 18ft seas that are rising.

Foot note. The remark about crew fatigue in the C130 is quite poignant wouldn't have had that problem in a Nimrod.

If anyone is located in the NE of England, one of my cousins can get the keys to the row boats on Leazes Park lake. We could borrow a couple, row over there and rescue the thing. Tow it back to Newcastle and then flog it on eBay. PM me for details, yah?
