HMS Bounty's Launch 1789Kit


Fletcher Christian and his fellow mutineers forced Captain Bligh and his remaining 18 loyal crew members into one of the three launches aboard the H.M.S. Bounty. Captain Bligh was a superior navigator. Against all odds, he brought his remaining crew to safety. Forty days and 3,600 miles later, the men reached the safety of Island of Timor.
