Re: HMS Bounty and Hurricane Sandy
@ mb05j -
I am reserving judgement.
Some technical questions please.
I understand Bounty was diesel electric, correct?
Two gens driving 2 shafts, correct?
Two gens powering 2 electric bilge pumps, correct?
Both pumps able to be powered by either gen?, or were they mechanical engine driven pumps?
Were there any mechanical (human powered) bilge pumps?
Did each gen have it's own fuel day tank, or were they common?
Thank you for any insight you provide on the engineering capabilities of the vessel.
I hope no one on this forum is ever in a jury I'm ever faced with.
