A Replica Of The Replica Of HMS Bounty Is Planned

A proposal is being floated to build another HMS Bounty! The tall ship, a replica of the original 1700's Bounty, built in 1960 in Lunenburg for the movie "Mutiny On The Bounty", sank in Hurricane Sandy in the fall of 2012 off North Carolina. Now, a consortium of South Shore boat builders is looking at producing another Bounty replica. Lunenburg Mayor Rachel Bailey agrees there's no better place to build such a tall ship than in her town.

Its expected plans for the project and where the money for it will come from will be firmed up later this year.
