Captain of HMS Bounty

So far all the other crew have been found and accounted for, 14 alive, 1 sailing the heavenly seas now.

The captain of the HMS Bounty is still missing. And one must wonder if perhaps he did embrace the traditions of the days of sail, with the “captain going down with his ship.”

Much prayers to all the crew and their families. The following image is not something we see much in our era. Once, this was not an uncommon sight upon the Atlanic seas.  But rarely does a large tall ship go down these days.  I do not know if she is still floating below surface, and if there is any chance of recovery or not. Or if she sank all the way down.
