the death of bounty hits us hard–the inability to dewater a boat underway in hurrycame conditions is a scary scary event.
had those pumps been able to remain functional, the bounty actually could have made a successful passage.
this causes much thinking and burning of good wood we could use elsewhere–but is heavy thinking—memories of bounty while she was afloat, her adventures, her beauty underway–she was a wonder.
i hope her crew is recovering from their shock and loss—is only day one after the event that changed their lives completely—what does one do after such a loss when the loss was home and hearth…… too very sad…
RIP captain robin, claudene christian, and hms bounty.
