Well, the Coast Guard hearings on the sinking of the HMS Bounty are over and I've been thinking about that ship and her crew since last October when she went down. Here's a link to the lyrics and a MP3 sample of the first verse and chorus: Click here for lyrics and MP3 Sample!

This song is largely based on the testimony provided at the recent Coast Guard inquiry into the sinking of the tall-ship Bounty in October of 2012. I've been following the testimony live and the summaries by retired Coast Guard officer Mario Vittrano at the Facebook g-Captain forum; I find his summaries compassionate to the crew members but critical when it comes to safety and good judgment. I resisted composing the song until the hearings were complete. I think a message needs to be sent out to our friends in the tall-ship community, while this event is still fresh in our minds. It's true that the message won't be welcome by some, and painful to others. I regret that. But we should do all we can to ensure such a tragedy does not happen again.

Thanks! The hard work was done by the Coast Guard Inquiry panel, questioning the surviving crew members and other tall ship captains. I was told it will be weeks, if not months, before the Panel issues their conclusions.

Here's the latest version of my new song "Never Turn a Blind Eye to the Storm" about the Bounty's sinking, with guitar backup and harmonies: click here for lyrics and MP3 Sample!

Jeff Logan is providing guitar back-up and high harmony; I'm also providing a low harmony.

I've sung nautical songs for years and after the sinking of the Bounty last October I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to say. I watched the video from the 8 days of the Coast Guard Inquiry and read the summaries of the testimony from the surviving crew members, the Boothbay Shipyard workers, and other tall-ship captains. So what we have is a song about lessons to be learned, and hopefully lessons that will not be forgotten by those who sail these beautiful but vulnerable ships. I'd be interested in any comments you might have about this song.
