Bounty II, leaving with the rest of the Great Lakes Tall Ships ‘fleet’ following the 2010 Tall Ship Festival. It was a Full-rigged ship (also called a fully rigged ship). The ship was often referred to by people as “HMS Bounty,” but apparently it wasn’t authorized to use the “HMS” prefix. The ship had been used in several movies, and had been planning on attending the 2013 Tall Ship Festival before the tragic loss in the Atlantic in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy. I took this photograph from the eastern approach of Liberty Bridge in Bay City, Michigan, US, viewing up the Saginaw River.
