Bounty Stern, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
On a much happier day the HMS Bounty was dockside in Greenport, Long Island. Almost a side-bar to Hurricane Sandy's awful destruction to the US East Coast is the fact that the Bounty went down some 90 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras. As of this posting, the ship's captain remains missing and there is one confirmed death. Fourteen crew members were rescued by the US Coast Guard.
