They are lovely!!! I'm really impressed. Thank you for the pictures. I like the first picture that is labeled: HMS Bounty Mini 2. The one that seems to be taller and has some of the sails rolled up. History of HMS Bounty:
Kind regards (Canadian Client) Jan 2006.
The ten remaining mutineers were eventually brought to trial in England and three of them hanged.
Lieutenant Bligh on the other hand, with the fully loaded Bounty launch (with 7 inches of freeboard on a 23 foot vessel), made his way to the Dutch settlement of East Timor. On his way, he landed on the Island of Tofoa, in Fiji. Unfortunately, they met with a poor reception and one of the crew was killed.
He arrived at his destination having travelled 3,600 miles for forty-three days in unsheltered waters on very meagre rations. He only lost one member of his crew in this outstanding feat of navigation. The voyage of the Bounty launch has remained almost without peer in the history of navigation. Bligh re-performed his original mission in HMS Providence in 1792.
The story of the HMS Bounty has inspired countless retellings. The first of the several movies of the mutiny was called appropriately “The mutiny on the Bounty” appeared in 1935. The stars were Charles Laughton and Clark Gable and featured the Lilly as the Bounty. Replicas of the Bounty were built for the 1962 remake starring Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard, and for Bounty (1985) with Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins.
