Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

PCP,
Thanks for posting Wikipedia article. The lost ships section was interesting. Go to site and click on the ships names for more details:

Lost tall shipsTall ships are sometimes lost, such as by a storm at sea. Some examples of this include:

Bounty full-rig ship lost off the North Carolina coast as Hurricane Sandy approached in 2012.

Concordia was a triple mast Barquentine built in 1992, operated by Canada as a school ship. Lost at sea in 2010 in a squall.

Asgard II, an Irish national sail training ship, commissioned in 1982, was lost in 2008 off the French coast. The 2-masted brigantine is thought to have collided with a submerged object.

Fantome a former yacht built in 1927, then operating as a cruise ship was lost in Hurricane Mitch in 1998.[5]

Marques, built in 1917, it was lost in a 1984 Tall Ships Race.

This is interesting of the Fantome's fate:
