Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
Yes... actually Cutty Sark
is what was known as a "hybrid" (composite construction) - timber on iron frames - and Vasa
isn't so much a ship as an exercise in advanced conservation techniques.. but, yes, you're right... and you missed all of the ones we have down here ("famous" being a relative term)..
..but back to the story at hand.
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
