Bligh was one of the great navigators of history. He was selected by Captain Cook, who is generally held to have known a thing or two about navigating, to be Sailing Master for what turned out to be Cook's final voyage. Also he was praised by Nelson for his part in the battle of Copenhagen.

In non-alternate history, as well as the Bounty incident and the Rum Rebellion, Bligh was one of the captains of the ships involved in the Spithead mutiny and AGAIN at the Nore mutiny. He did seem to rub some people up the wrong way.

Oh, no arguing with his navigational skills; he set the benchmark. But his people skills appear to have been significantly lacking.
