The original HMS Bounty was built in 1784 and purchased by the British Navy in 1787. Her story is long and stormy filled with conflict, mutiny and more. She was burned by mutineers, 23 January 1790. The HMS Bounty 1960 toured the east coast and on 25 October 2012, the vessel left New London, Connecticut, heading for St. Petersburg, Florida, initially going on an easterly course to avoid Hurricane Sandy. She was unable to withstand the storm and ultimately sunk. Fourteen people were rescued from life rafts and two died.
