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.
