Fitted as a frigate, HMS Bounty is the ship that sailed into the history books in 1789 when Fletcher Christian and his fellow mutineers forced the tyrannical Captain Bligh and 18 loyal crew members into an open longboat  with few provisions and cast it adrift.  

The Bounty sailed on and anchored at Pitcairn Island, while in an extraordinary feat of seamanship, Bligh and his men survived the open sea to make land on the island of Timor: a journey of 4,000 miles!
