Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
The Bounty built in New Zealand (Bounty III) had a steel hull. It had twin turbo diesels with almost twice the power of the engines on the Bounty II. Seems like major differences between the two ships. Can't find specs on Bounty II so don't know if had the same length on deck, beam and draught as the original.
