A report from a CG helo pilot said they lost rudder control. And they had 2 helos and a C-130 looking for the missing.

Apparently, the last words heard before they struck out was "Hey Joe, you said the weathers gonna be clear over the next couple of days right?"

Whoever thought taking an 1800's ship out to sea right into the path of an on-coming hurricane should be force to walk the plank...

Arrrr.....

amazing that they were able to find 16 people stupid enough to go to sea in a sail boat that are simultaneously smart enough to operate a sail boat.

OK, first, it's not an 1800's ship - it's the HMS Bounty from the 1962 movie "Mutiny on the Bounty." So, it's a relatively modern, replica, ship.

Second, most ships go to sea, vs staying in port, during a hurricane. Slamming ships into those big, non-moving things called continents tend to do more damage than the big sloshy thing.

Could they have picked a better route? Probably. Or maybe just kept it in port, anchored somewhere? I'm sure there will be all sorts of questions afterwards.

(this is meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but I have a feeling it's coming off as sarcastic/rude. Sorry)

I would recommend reserving judgment until a bit more is known about the circumstances......

Resorting to using such words as "dummies", "stupid" etc is amateurish and smacks of a vulgar smugness from some people here which is disappointing to say the least. Also you may never know that visitors who find this forum, may be one of the families or friends who lost one of their loved ones on that ship and are seeking answers. For them to see these posts with rude and uneducated, unresearched responses, really does a disservice to not only this forum but also the vast majority of good people here and above all, tarnishes Doug Ritter's great efforts to make our world safer.
