Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
I had read in one of the documents the lead ballast was removed from inside the hull (and placed outside on the keel) to make more interior room for passengers.
The ship was what, 180'? And they typically had 12 passengers. When she sunk there was 16 on board. What was all the other room below used for?
