Picture of the HMS Bounty sinkingThe HMS Bounty was lost at sea during Hurricane Sandy off the coast of North Carolina. Fourteen of the ship's 16-member crew are reportedly in good condition after a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter rescue Monday. Two others, Claudene Christian and Capt. Robin Walbridge, were swept overboard when the ship keeled over in 18-foot (5.5-meter) waves.
Several hours after the initial rescue, the Coast Guard found Christian's unresponsive body floating in the water. Walbridge is still unaccounted for.

This past July I was lucky enough to be able to walk upon and below her decks. 


  1. So glad that there was survivor's. Have wondered if you were still blogging? Great to see you.

  2. OMG! That is just horrible! I'm so sorry to hear of the two that lost their lives. Thank goodness everyone else is okay!
