PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - With the HMS Bounty taking on water and the decision to abandon ship in the middle of Hurricane Sandy nearing, Capt. Robin Walbridge gathered the crew to ask the same question federal officials are now investigating: What exactly went wrong?
"He asked for some brainstorming. At what point did we lose control? I don't know that anybody had many ideas," the ship's boatswain, Laura Groves told a federal safety panel at a Virginia hotel on Friday.
