Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

I hope you know I am laughing at the absurdity of this line of conversation. Tall Ships America has their classifications, but I can assure you, few Tall ship sailors give a whit. It is a term that is by no means standardized, and is a semi-fluid and broad term. Just as centuries ago, "ship" meant a 3+ masted ship(a full-rigged ship was defined as 3+ masts and square sails on all), and in modern times ships are only massive metal container vessels or Navy ships.

So really, no need to get your feathers ruffled.
