HMS Bounty RIP

Seen here in September 2007 – HMS Bounty sank in Hurricane Sandy in
October 2012. One member of the crew (a descendent of Fletcher Christian), and the captain died.

The historic replica, a square-rigger, was built for the 1962 film Mutiny On The
Bounty, starring Marlon Brando as Fletcher Christian, but was best known for
playing the Black Pearl in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.
