    ... So in my view the skipper clung to his prior decision to go south (to be able to meet his schedule) and just disregarded the facts that told him to seek shelter.

    Do you have any factual basis for believing that Capt Walbridge chose to sail on Oct 25 in order to meet a schedule?

    From published reports, it seems that the Bounty was due in St Petersburg for an event on Nov 10. The ship could have sailed well after the storm passed and still arrived on time.
