    Oh but you see it's a sailing school vessel.

    Fully seasoned crew ready for anything.

    From their Facebook page:

    Bounty Update 10/28 2012 11PM EST

    One of Bounty's generators has failed....they are taking on more water than they would like.

    THE CREW AND BOUNTY ARE SAFE.....

    At 2118 hrs The Coast Guard issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast for the HMS Bounty taking on water 90 miles SE of Cape Hatteras, with 15+ people aboard....THAT HAS BEEN RESCINDED...

    Tracie is in contact with the Coast Guard at this very moment and is closely monitoring the situation.
    Tracie has also spoken to Captain Robin who confirmed that the Bounty and crew are safe.

    The Captain will await till morning to determine if Bounty is in need of any assistance.

    They actually left during a hurricane ? The captain is an idiot and should lose is license if that is the case. Needlessly endagering 14 other lives...very bad decision!!

    All I can say is pray for them. My local news station reported they sent out a mayday and have lost all propulsion...

    I will be praying for them througout watch this morning. Perhaps the captain should stay onboard when they are rescued. Just kidding, but he should never be allowed command of another vessel for the rest of his days!
