Good morning to Captain and crew alike, and welcome to the Admiralty Docket. Today, an update on current events. 
Sailing Vessel Charleston Harbor
The HMS BOUNTY, a 180 foot replica of the original square-rigged sailing ship of the same name of Mutiny on the Bounty fame, sank off of the coast of North Carolina after encountering high seas brought on by Hurricane Sandy. On Monday, October 29, 2012, Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City reported that the vessel had sunk approximately 90 miles from Cape Hatteras and that two crew members, including Captain Robin Walbridge, were missing. The Coast Guard rescued 14 of the 16 members of the crew, but the Captain was not found and has been presumed deceased. The Coast Guard has recovered crew member Claudene Christian, who was the great-great-great-great-great granddaughter of Fletcher Christian, leader of the Mutiny on the Bounty and then Master of the original HMS Bounty. Ms. Christian was found to be unresponsive and later pronounced dead in Elizabeth City, NC. 
The replica was built for the 1962 film Mutiny on the Bounty, a retelling of the events aboard the original vessel as they played out in the late 18th century.
