Festival of Sail - HMS Bounty

A theatrical piece of Tall Ship sat at the end of one of the piers in San Fran Bay last week: the HMS Bounty was specially built for the 1962 film, Mutiny of the Bounty, starring Marlon Brando and Trevor Howard.

Commissioned by MGM, it was modelled on the original Bounty. Its magnificent masthead, the doughty Bethia, came from Captain Bligh's ship.

More details to follow

I was at the same event, and like you, taking pix of the Bounty. Your pix are rather dark but you can probably lighten them up easily, to be more naturalistic, by using a slider on the exposure bar in the Edit Menu of your camera's computer software.
