The HMS Bounty, the replica ship built for the 1962 movie "Mutiny on the Bounty," made a stop in Belfast last summer, just a few months before it sank last fall, on October 29, off the coast of North Carolina during Hurricane Sandy. Miles interviewed the survivors in researching her tale of the Bounty's last hours. Of the 16 people on board, 14 survived. The ship's captain and Claudene Christian did not.

The famous mutiny, led by Fletcher Christian against Commander Bligh, took place in 1789 aboard the British ship HMS Bounty. The mutineers settled on Pitcairn Island and Tahiti, and some of their descendants still live on Pitcairn Island. Claudene Christian was said to be a descendant of Fletcher Christian.

The U.S. Coast Guard just concluded hearings at the end of February into the sinking of the Bounty. It's expected to be months before the investigation is completed.

The Bounty was at Boothbay Harbor Shipyard last fall for a month for repairs. It left the shipyard on October 21, just days before it sank. According to a report in the New York Times, an official from the shipyard told investigators during the hearings that the shipyard found rot on the ship when it was being repaired, but the captain chose not to replace the rotted wood.
