HISTORY OF THE SHIP: HMS BOUNTY MERCHANT VESSEL
Discover the HMS Bounty merchant vessel, the stage of one of the most famous riots in history, thanks to this fantastic wooden model ship kit. Captain William Bligh was embarked on a boat with eighteen loyal sailors and carried out a great feat by sailing more than 3,500 nautical miles for forty-seven days until arriving at port, losing only one of his men.
In December 1787, HMS Bounty departed from England for Tahiti to transport bread trees to the Caribbean, finding a great storm that forced them to change course and arrive in Tahiti several months late. This delay forced them to remain on the island several months until it was again possible to collect the shoots from the bread tree.
The crew became habituated to the customs of the natives and established relations with women of Tahiti, almost forgetting their condition of English sailors. After many difficulties on the part of Bligh to reimpose the discipline, undertook trip the 4 of April of 1789, producing the mutiny twenty-four days later.
