One Crew Member Dead, One Missing In HMS Bounty Shipwreck

•, Robert Johnson
 One of the world's most famous ships, the HMS Bounty is a victim of Hurricane Sandy.

Initially the ship was reported to be "intact and upright" but subsequent reports say it has sunk.

The Bounty departed Connecticut last week and was underway to Florida, making efforts to sidestep the large hurricane moving up from the south.

According to a picture posted from the ship October 25, "Bounty has departed New London CT...Next Port of Call...St. Petersburg, Florida.
Bounty will be sailing due East out to sea before heading South to avoid the brunt of Hurricane Sandy."

Unfortunately, the ship succumbed to what initial reports are saying were 18-foot-seas, when the Bounty's Captain ordered everyone aboard to abandon ship.
