Last year, the 31 of may we had the HMS paying a visit to Oostende. No doubt we had to go, and we had a great time in visiting this beautiful ship.
It was not the original of course, but it was a well made replica made to be used in films, like Pirates of the Caribbeans.
She was born (launched)in august 27th of the year 1960 and she died (sank) the 29 October 2012.
The storm called Sandy hit her with great strength and there was no rescue for the boat. She capsized and sank. Luckily an incredible rescue was done to save the crew.
The captain is missing and another crew member is also missing but the other 14 crew people have been saved.
Of course I had to have a crew sweater of the Bounty. The strange story is that a couple of days ago, I decided to wash it and I didn't dare to put it on the washing machine, and I washed it by hand. Incredible the amount of water it absorbs, it felt like hundred kilos. It is not dry yet.
I feel kind of sad to wear it now. There is no more crew of the HMS Bounty.
