A boat is a conveyance to get from here to there safely. In 1787 when the real bounty was built they didn't give a dam about how she looked, it was just about how many oceans she could cross and how many guns she could carry. Just like a modern cargo ship....except for the guns!
Agree, and now days off Somalia, the guns are even useful...
