Monday Meme Madness

Manic Monday chose Bounty! Bounty? WTF! Ok, here is one....

Bounty is the name of one of the most famous ship props.
Bounty was built as a movie prop in 1960 for the 1962 MGM release of Mutiny on the Bounty. This makes Bounty different than many tall ships in that her "tween" deck has 8' foot ceilings. This made it easier for the film crew. As a result, Bounty has been hired for many films and documentaries. From Treasure Island and Yellowbeard to Sponge Bob, Square Pants, the Movie, to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest to name a few. In addition to commercial movies, Bounty has also been the stage for many documentaries.
Movies raise the awareness of tall ships today, who they are, and what they contribute to maritime history - yesterday's, today's and tomorrow's.

    Yup, I'm with Janna I loved the shots! You're amazing. Nice job. My bounty is here.

  4. You've got lovely children!

  5. I didn't realise that the Bounty also belonged to the same post! I like tall ships and I saw the "Mutiny of the Bounty", "The Pirates of the Carribean", "Treasure Island" and "Yellowbeard". Very interesting that they used the same ship!
