Yes this breaks my heart…

King Neptune has decided to call HMS Bounty home.

The HMS Bounty, a three masted ship, was 90 miles southeast of Hatteras, N.C., when the owner called saying she’d lost contact with the crew Sunday night, The AP reported. The Bounty is a 180-foot replica of the ship featured in the film “Mutiny on the Bounty.”

14 of the crew have been rescued however two are still missing.  King Neptune did however make sure his work was witnessed by many.

Rescue workers watched as the Bounty completely sank later this morning.

Tall masted ships aren’t exactly made any more and are becoming harder and harder to come by.  I hope and pray that the two missing crew are found alive.

May the Bounty find peace in the depths of Neptune’s keep.

    Sadly, she went down in the Graveyard of ships, off Wilmington, NC… And two are still missing. Kudos to the USCG 130s and the Jayhawk crews that went out and pulled five and nine from the water.

      I didn’t think about where she went down… I guess she’ll be among good company.

      And yes, those CG crews do a fantastic job.
