Bounty - July 8th, 2008 - Port Angeles, Washington

Bounty – July 8th, 2008 – Port Angeles, Washington

In July of 2008, a photographer named Robert Demar took a two-day trip aboard Bounty from Port Angeles, WA to Port Albernie, B.C.; taking over 2,000 photographs of the ship and her crew along the way. With all the recent attention on the hearings and the discussions about what went wrong or didn’t and who was or wasn’t to blame, Mr. Demar thought maybe some would simply like to see the ship as she was: I know I did. Mr. Demar was kind enough to send me his favorite images from that sail and asked me to give them a home: here they are. It is very easy to see why her crew was drawn to her.

She was a beautiful ship.

    She was beautiful! Outstanding photographs. To see all the lines on such a ship, gives a real appreciation to the blessing that so many got free of it when she listed…I can see how it could have been much worse, and how the ability to get clear of the rigging needed to be accounted for in the decision to abandon.

    I went searching and found some photographs of Bounty in Drydock from 2001 as she received new white oak planking below the waterline. Picture thread here:

    How appropriate and wonderful to remember her beauty instead of her demise. Thank you gcaptain.

    Thank you. It’s been since the mid-1960’s that I last felt the Bounty’s wood and lines. Great pictures of the belay racks, blocks, and people. Seeing them in action brings back dear old feelings that can never be forgotten. Thanks for putting it out where we can all enjoy. She is beautiful.
