Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
The Bounty was a dock side attraction for a number of years after it was rescued from its scheduled demise from being set ablaze at the end of the filming of the movie. After Ted Turner unknowly purchased the boat with his acquisition of MGM film rights, he ordered the accountants to get rid of it and from that time forward it entered the realm of blue water sailing....Just follow the money...or lack of it
The crew was lucky to have those survival suits considering the shoe string budget.
