Sailing ship Bounty's visit to Greenock, 2009

With the sinking of Bounty in Hurricane Sandy last month and the sad loss of two of her crew, including the captain, I decided to have a look back at some of my old photo galleries and came across some pictures of her berthed at Greenock in 2009.

Bounty was built for the 1962 version of the film 'Mutiny on the Bounty'. She was an enlarged reconstruction of the original HMS Bounty. She starred in other films including 'Treasure Island' and some of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films.
