HMS Bounty 2 sunk during Hurricane Sandy!!!


I am sure many of you have no doubt heard about the superstorm Hurricane Sandy, that was also dubbed--"Frankstorm," haven't [sign in to see URL] traveled up our East Coast, leaving destruction on the coastal towns between New Jersey & New York?

Well, guess what? The HMS Bounty 2, the replica ship of the original, that was built particularly for Marlon Brando's film--Mutiny on the Bounty. Was caught in the above mentioned storm off of the North/South Carolina coast, for which she was sunk.

Thankfully, many of her crewmembers & passengers were rescued by our US Coast [sign in to see URL] her Captain was lost at sea. His body was never found, even after this storm moved on.

So, if you should hear more about this disaster at sea, please DO add your news to this, my thread. OK?

Thank you.

There is a news report here;



It's very sad. Two people died, the ships captain, Robin Walbridge, and crew member Claudene Christian.

Thank YOU, Tom, for posting this video on HMS Bounty 2 & her crew.

Isn't Claudine Christian, ironically, a descendant of Fletcher Christian, the chief mutineer who took command of the original Bounty? For which he, & his band of mutineers burnt 'n' sank her off the coast of Pitcairn Island.

I'm asking, b/c I did read that there was a crew member who this particular company that is an actual descendant of Fletcher's.
