Paulo, it's been stated already here - without any disagreement - that "Bounty" was classed as a private yacht

They even subverted the tonnage rules to get (less) 250GT certification to avoid some of the rules.
They subverted the system to register as a private yacht.
Can you please
stop comparing the decisions of the late captain of the "Bounty" with the captains of "real" (ie. qualified & certified) Tall Ships??.. It simply is not fair to do so.
From RFC 1925: "(3) With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead."
