I understand it was foolish of me to to ask for some kind of proof that the Bounty was actually a poorly made ship.

I mean really now..... you are the one who made the remark " it was a movie prop" implying that it wasnt a serious ship.

I show you a similar replica Bounty built in NZ costing $4,000,000 which in no ones mind will be considered not a serious ship...it was also used to film movies.

I quote the Lunenberg, Nova Scotia site that says it was bulit to Royal Navt specs just longer. You say well " they were gonna burn it".

I point out that they were making a movie and the real HMS Bounty was burned at the end. Seems like those like Brando didnt want to see that happen so they saved it from that.

I ask for proof, real proof that the Bounty made in Lunenberg, NS was not a proper ship and you say

It is not me making the foolish statement my friend. This is not meant a a person attack, I am just FACT checking your statement.

I am still awaiting proof the original design was less than a seaworth vessel as was implied with the statement made and reiterated by many....
