Last February, my wife and I took a cruise to the Caribbean. Our first stop after leaving Miami was San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our ship docked directly behind this beautiful tall ship. It's a replica of the HMS Bounty and was built in 1962 for the movie "Mutiny on the Bounty". The movie starred Marlon Brando.
As some of you might have heard on recent news, the Bounty was lost in the raging seas from Hurricane Sandy just off the coast of North Carolina. The captain of the ship is still missing and one other crew member was killed. Fourteen crew members were rescued. Sadly, the Bounty now resides at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
God be with Captain Walbridge as the search for him continues.
This is how the Bounty looked just a few short months ago. February, 2012 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
