Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Casey I agree. The original build quality is important as it seems to debunk the posters who said it was merely a movie prop. The maintainence will help determine whether it was kept in that condition or allowed to "rot". There have been some damning puctures and reports posted, but no one is positive if these were before shots which were corrected during the many refts.

I am attenpting to go back through the threads as I though one of the designers posted as your point about changing to a larger build is very pertinant.
