H.M.S Bounty Replica Sinks

The famous H.M.S. Bounty replica featured in Pirates of the Caribbean is now at the bottom of the ocean, after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on its voyage from Connecticut to Florida on Monday afternoon. The Coast Guard rescued 14 crew members from a rubber life raft off the coast of North Carolina. Crew member Claudene Christian was found “unresponsive” later on Monday, and was taken to the hospital; Capt. Robin Walbridge remains missing. Crew members on the 180-foot replica of the 18th-century tall ship were reportedly in constant contact with the National Hurricane Center and trying to make it around the storm when their three-mast ship was wrecked amid 40 mph winds and 18-foot waves.
