Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
You're right - most of them are steel - although this one HMB Endeavour
is a world traveller (via the Horn no less!) and certainly not steel..
You can just look at that boat and see that it was built tough, I think the Bounty was not built to tarvel the world and I don't think it should have been out there at it's age. The ship I worked on was Fero-Cement, built in 1976 and it's still sailing the Globe. I think the worms were holding the Bounty together.
