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.
"Honestly, I don't know why seamen persist in getting wrecked in some of the outlandish places they do, when they can do it in a nice place like Fiji." -- John Caldwell, "Desperate Voyage"
