A really interesting look at the timeline of the Bounty sinking. Thanks to Anarchist Eric for the head’s up. From gCaptain

Drivers always slow down and rubberneck at car accidents, don’t they? Like me, you may have caught yourself complaining about the practice and wondering “Why are people so morbid that they have to slow down and look?” That’s what we all say, at least until we get close enough to see, and though we might strain our eyes to avoid looking like we are looking, we drive just a little more slowly and look for ourselves.

We shouldn’t be ashamed. It’s not morbid to want to look at the scene of an accident. It’s human. It’s primal, in fact. We look not to see what happened, but to learn. Drivers slowing down to look at the scene of a crash are trying to figure out what happened so they can avoid it happening to them.

In all the discussions and rants and back-and-forth commentary concerning the sinking of Bounty, people seem to fully agree on only one thing: Bounty should have never left port and attempted to sail into the Atlantic. It would have been better if she stayed in New London, or sought refuge from the storm in New Bedford. She should have gone upriver or just stayed there at the dock and hoped for the best. Everyone I have talked to and every commentary I have read affirms that anything would have been better than sailing into the Atlantic on October 25th, 2012. Read on
