Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I'm surprised there has been no information on the actual material specs. on the Bounty replica/prop/disposable. I cannot imagine that the quality of the materials was not compromised to keep the cost down for something that was intended to be trashed after filming was done. White oak or red? Bronze or steel? Long leaf pine or white? This may be the reason she worked so much and leaked terribly.
