    Thanks for this.

    Regarding Nat Geo Bounty clip: note 1) the young Capt. Robt S Douglas of schooners Shenandoah & Alabama in focsle scene, 2) not to totally nit-pick but Nat Geo needs to fact check. Bounty was not ‘biggest ship built in Lunenburg (perhaps if the qualifier ‘at that time’ had been used)…Rose (Lunenburg 1970…same Smith & Rhuland shed) was bigger than Bounty in length, tonnage and rig.

    I am from a sailing family and we built many ships including the Bismark and USS Eagle and many like her. What a history of the Bounty and the people still are connceted to Pitcarnen Island and the lady who was related to Christan on the original Bounty, what a conncetion. This is living history.
    Wow. I live where a long lost realative lost his ship to Gold diggers in the Gold Rush in San Francisco. His crew jumped ship when reaching San Francisco harbor in 1849-1850.
