Crew of HMS Bounty abandons ship off Cape Hattaras
Coast Guard initially received a call from the owner of the 180 foot, three mast tall ship, HMS Bounty, late Sunday evening, saying she had lost communication with the vessel's crew.
The ship is a replica of the one made famous in the 1960 MGM film "Mutiny on the Bounty" and it was used in that film, which starred Marlin Brando. The ship was also used in the film "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."
The vessel was taking on water and had no propulsion.
The Coast Guard in Portsmouth later received a signal from the emergency position indicating radio beacon of the Bounty, confirming the position.
The Coast Guard was trying to determine whether to use cutters or helicopters to rescue the crew, based on the current ocean conditions, Weydert said.
