HMS Bounty
the Captain of this ship, the HMS Bounty (2), sailed
this beautiful ship right into the eye of a hurricane,
and arrived to meet the hurricane right off the coast
of Cape Hatteras.

can anyone give us some background info on this captain,
and how it is that such an obvious retard such as this lame-brain
could have ever have be made a captain...

at least he had the decency to go down with his ship.

(that's about the only good thing there is to say about that fellow)

Re: HMS Bounty
The actual maritime tradition is not "...to go down with the ship," it is that the Captain is the last to leave the ship. Doesn't always work out for the captain.

i'm not any kind of an expert but i can't imagine (or find online) what that shit is appraised or insured for

let's say it's 20 mil, thats a million each to keep their traps shut.. and a heck of a party on the way out.. not to mention destroying a piece of (replicated) history

i'd be down.

Re: HMS Bounty
Yeah, as soon as I heard this yesterday a red flag shot up. I reckon they had enough warning about the storm to move to a safe location. I know you are better to ride storms out at sea but this is a crappy old tallship and not up to the task of hurricane conditions.

I'd bet heavily on an insurance scam gone wrong. That the Bounty was worth more at the bottom of the ocean than floating around.

The woman who died was a direct descendant of Christian Fletcher of the original Bounty! I think her name is Christine.

Re: HMS Bounty
they still had no business being off the coast of Cape Hatteras on Sunday night after a whole previous 7 days
of severe hurricane warnings.

if that moron Captain wanted to get out of the way of the
hurricane, he should have been sailing NORTH! and not stop
until he got to Nova Scotia !

Ship was due to be in St. Petersburg by Nov 9. It's not real fast, and the early predictions had this this far out to sea at the point the ship sank.

They thought they could skirt the edge of it. The Outer Banks claimed yet another in it's long, LONG list of shipwreck victims.

You're close.
Fletcher Christian was the leader of the mutineers.
The woman's last name was Christian, also. Don't know if she was related or not.

Wonder if there were any Bligh's aboard?

Sailing out to sea is the usual way to keep your ships from being smashed onto shore during a hurricane. He was sailing with the wind, but got in trouble with the big waves. Most of the motorized ships sailed East instead of heading South, but that would have been against a ferocious head wind for this sailing ship.

Very sad. I had a chance to tour the ship when I was a little kid--it was an experience!

 Quoting: Dr Einstein


Doubt the Captain was the owner. Also it takes a large crew to sail a ship like this, and I'm sure they had to be gathered. With limited time and winds as they were, he likely made the only choice he could. Don't speak ill of the dead that you know nothing about.
