HMS Bounty ship sunk by Sandy

Two crew members missing.

My best wishes go out for the missing crewmen, but what in the Seven Hells were they doing out there in the path of a hurricane in the first place? Don’t these people ever watch The Weather Channel?

They were headed toward Florida and tried to go further out to sea.

I got a chance to go aboard a few years ago. It is not a very big ship.

I’m sorry for the missing people, but this doesn’t make what they were doing any less dumb. Sandy was widely expected to travel right up the East Coast, though the area this ship was sailing in. Why did these guys risk their lives to save what, at the end of the day, is really just an old movie prop? It’s sad.

There was a mutiny.
