HMS Bounty: the inside story of its final days The HMS Bounty left New London, Conn., on Oct. 25 for a sail to St. Petersburg, Fla. It went due east to try to avoid hurricane Sandy, but the crew was mistaken in thinking the danger had been skirted. The HMS Bounty was apparently headed to a public appearance in St. Petersburg, Fla., when it sank Monday off the coast of North Carolina amid the howling winds of hurricane Sandy.
Fourteen of the 16 people aboard the replica tall ship were rescued by Coast Guard helicopters. Crew member Claudene Christian was pulled unresponsive from the water and later pronounced dead at a North Carolina hospital. Ship captain Robin Walbridge remained missing as of midday Tuesday. According to the Coast Guard, Walbridge went overboard when the ship rolled from the impact of 18-foot waves.
Sandy – the perfect storm
Coast Guard assets, including a 225-foot cutter, an HC-130 aircraft, and an MH-60 helicopter continued to search for Walbridge, as the water temperature in the area is nearly 80 degrees F. If properly clad in a survival suit, someone could survive in such an environment for a considerable length of time, Coast Guard officials say.
According to information posted on the HMS Bounty’s Facebook page, the wooden ship recently underwent a month of painting and structural refurbishment at Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Maine
The current work on the ship was finished Oct. 18. On Oct. 21, the Bounty left Boothbay for a stop in New London, Conn. On the 25th, the ship went for a day sail in Long Island Sound carrying US Navy personnel.
