The HMS Bounty ship
that sank in Super Storm Sandy was a replica of the original Bounty, built for the 1962 “Mutiny on the Bounty” movie, which starred Marlon Brando as Christian. It was constructed from original Royal Navy plans, but was made one-third larger to accommodate cameras and other filming equipment.
Over the years it has starred in a number of sailing movies, including the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film series, in which it was the pirate ship Black Pearl.
Tracie Simonin, director of the HMS Bounty Organization, said that the ship left Connecticut at the start of the storm, bound for Florida and was in contact with the National Hurricane Center as it tried to skirt the massive storm barreling up the East Coast.....The massive storm sunk the tall ship HMS Bounty off the coast of North Carolina.
Two US Coast Guard helicopters rescued 14 of the ship’s 16 crew members early in the morning but the captain went down with the ship and a crew member was lost in the huge waves.
The ship had issued a distress call at 6:30, Eastern time, on Sunday evening, according to the website of the HMS Bounty Organization. At that time it lost power, and pumps were unable to keep up with water rising in the ship. The vessel was taking on two feet of water per hour.
Bounty Organization officials contacted the Coast Guard, which sent a C-130 aircraft to track the distressed vessel at its location, approximately 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C. By 4:30 a.m., the situation was so bad that the captain ordered the ship abandoned. The Coast Guard says its helicopters pulled 14 survivors from lifeboats by 6:30 a.m. Monday.
