Re: HMS Bounty in trouble...
...Given the amount of money the US government is reported to spend on a non-essential like their space program, it's a little surprising to me that more isn't being done to ensure vessels like the "Bounty" aren't maintained in better condition...
GIVE ME A BREAK!! While I love sailing and tall ships, suggesting that the space program is less essential to our collective well-being than refurbishing old rotted out movie props is really stretching the limits of credibility. Given the defense and intelligence ramifications of space, I think there's pretty strong argument that the government should be funding space program - much stronger than the other option that you propose.
