HISTORY OF HMS BOUNTY AND ITS JOLLY BOAT: ITS WOODEN MODEL
Discover the HMS Bounty Jolly Boat, wooden model of the boat in which William Bligh was shipped with 18 loyal sailors after the riot of its crew of the HMS Bounty.
In December 1787, HMS Bounty left England bound for Haiti to transport bread trees to the Caribbean, a great storm which forced them to change course, arriving in Haiti with months of delay. This delay forced them to remain on the island several months until it was again possible to collect the shoots from the bread tree. In this room the crew became habituated to the customs of the natives and established relations with women of Haiti, 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 24 days later. Bligh sailed more than 3,500 nautical miles for 47 days to the port of the Dutch colony of Coupang, losing only one of his men on the voyage.
