Bounty Hurricane Walbridge Sandy DeadThe National Transportation Safety Board spent 15 months deciding that the loss of the Bounty along with her skipper Robin Walbridge and crew Claudene Christian was indeed the Captain’s fault, and that the organization that owned her contributed by failing keep proper safety oversight over her condition.  We’ll never know just what kind of craziness got into Walbridge’s head, unless he wanted so badly to be from another era that he chose to die like so many thousands did before modern weather forecasting; by sailing into a hurricane.
