Poor decision possibly made by money

The Bounty was due in its winter home of St Petersburg Fla for a show and tour on Nov.11 and 12. The ship was in New London Ct last week. No good reason to sail south in the storm. The ship only had a draft of about 14' and could have waited out the storm in any number of protected harbors and "storm holes" in New England and still make it under power to St Pete by the 11th (about 10 days at 6 knots)

Had the Bounty survived the voyage through the hurricane it's fame and marketability would have certainly increased.

The owner of the Bounty have been trying to sell her since 2010. recently re-listed with a broker http://www.easternyachts.com/bounty/index.htm
