Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...

Maybe you are right but in what regards Europe I don't think that is the case. The British "wasted" a fortune recovering the Cutty Sark that was destroyed some years ago by a fire:

Curator’s tours of the Cutty Sark : Events : Visit : RMG

The Swedish took from the bottom of the ocean the Vasa, a XVII century ship, preserved it and put it in a museum at a fabulous cost.

The French besides having several Tall ships have almost finish a new one, a copy of L' Herminoine the ship on which La Fayette embarked in 1780, to bring help and support to the American insurgents.

Hermione, freedom

Maritime museums in Europe are popular places and I would say that existent tall ships here are not at risk and have enough funding, state or from private sponsorship.
