The 180-foot-long tall ship was sailing south from Connecticut to Florida when it failed to dodge the massive superstorm. Featured in two Pirates movies, Dead Man’s Chest and At World’s End, it was built for Mutiny on the Bounty, based on the true story of Fletcher Christian‘s infamous overthrow of Captain William Bligh in 1789.
