Captain William Bligh was loaded onto a boat with 18 loyal sailors and held a great feat by sailing more than 3,500 nautical miles for 47 days until reaching port, losing the life only one of his men. In December 1787 the HMS Bounty left England for Haiti to transport breadfruit to the Caribbean, finding a great storm that forced them to change course and come to Haiti several months late. This delay forced them to stay on the island for several months until it was again possible to collect breadfruit outbreaks. After many difficulties by Bligh to impose discipline again, they began their journey on April 4, 1789, resulting the mutiny 24 days after.Build your 1/48 scale model of the HMS Bounty, scenery of one of the most famous riots in the history of navigation.

Plan and section of the Bounty Armed Transport showing the manner of fitting and stowing the pots for receiving the bread-fruit plants, from William Bligh's 1792 account of the voyage and mutiny, entitled A Voyage to the South Sea, available from Project Gutenberg.
That mission was never completed due to a mutiny led by Acting Lieutenant Fletcher Christian. This was the famous Mutiny on the Bounty.The remains of the Bounty were discovered in 1957 by an American adventurer and various parts of it have been salvaged since then. Bounty was originally known as collier Bethia, built in 1784 at the Blaydes shipyard in Kingston upon Hull, East Yorkshire, England. After conversion for the breadfruit expedition, she was equipped with four 4-pounder (1.8 kg) cannons and ten swivel guns.
The experiment was proposed by Sir Joseph Banks, who recommended William Bligh as commander, who in turn was promoted through a prize offered by the Royal Society of Arts. In June 1787, Bounty was refitted at Deptford. The great cabin was converted to house the potted breadfruit plants, and gratings were fitted to the upper deck. William Bligh was appointed Commanding Lieutenant of Bounty on 16 August 1787 at the age of 33, after a career that included a tour as sailing master of James Cook's Resolution during Cook's third and final voyage (177680). On 23 December 1787, Bounty sailed from Spithead for Tahiti.
Bligh then proceeded east, rounding the southern tip of Africa (Cape Agulhas) and crossing the width of the Indian Ocean. During the outward voyage, Bligh demoted Sailing Master John Fryer, replacing him with Fletcher Christian. This act seriously damaged the relationship between Bligh and Fryer, and Fryer later claimed that Bligh's act was entirely personal. The Bounty painting by Yasmina (2009) Bligh is commonly portrayed as the epitome of abusive sailing captains, but this portrayal has recently come into dispute.Caroline Alexander points out in her 2003 book The Bounty that Bligh was relatively lenient compared with other British naval officers.  Bligh enjoyed the patronage of Sir Joseph Banks, a wealthy botanist and influential figure in Britain at the time.
Bounty reached Tahiti on 26 October 1788, after ten months at sea. Bligh and his crew spent five months in Tahiti, then called "Otaheite", collecting and preparing 1,015 breadfruit plants to be transported. Many of the seamen and some of the "young gentlemen" had themselves tattooed in native fashion. Master's Mate and Acting Lieutenant Fletcher Christian married Maimiti, a Tahitian woman. Other of Bounty's warrant officers and seamen were also said to have formed "connections" with native women.
After five months in Tahiti, Bounty set sail with her breadfruit cargo on 4 April 1789. Map showing Bounty's movements in the Pacific Ocean, 17881790 Voyage of Bounty to Tahiti and to location of the mutiny, 28 April 1789 Movements of Bounty after the mutiny, under Christian's command Course of Bligh's open-boat journey to Coupang Some 1,300 miles (2,100 km) west of Tahiti, near Tonga, mutiny broke out on 28 April 1789. Of the 42 men on board aside from Bligh and Christian, 22 joined Christian in mutiny, two were passive, and 18 remained loyal to Bligh.Several more men voluntarily joined Bligh rather than remain aboard. Bligh and his men sailed the open boat 30 nautical miles (56 km) to Tofua in search of supplies, but were forced to flee after attacks by hostile natives resulted in the death of one of the men. Bligh then undertook an arduous journey to the Dutch settlement of Coupang, located over 3,500 nautical miles (6,500 km) from Tofua. He safely landed there 47 days later, having lost no men during the voyage except the one killed on Tofua. The mutineers sailed for the island of Tubuai, where they tried to settle. Sixteen of the mutineers - including the four loyalists who had been unable to accompany Bligh - remained there, taking their chances that the Royal Navy would find them and bring them to justice. HMS Pandora was sent out by the Admiralty in November 1790 in pursuit of the Bounty, to capture the mutineers and bring them back to England to face a court martial. She arrived in March 1791 and captured fourteen men within two weeks; they were locked away in a makeshift wooden prison on the Pandora's quarterdeck. The men called their cell "Pandora's box". They remained in their prison until 29 August 1791 when the Pandora was wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef with the loss of 35 lives; four of them (Stewart, Sumner, Skinner and Hildebrand) were mutineers.
Immediately after setting the sixteen men ashore in Tahiti in September 1789, Fletcher Christian, eight other crewmen, six Tahitian men, and 11 women, one with a baby, set sail in Bounty hoping to elude the Royal Navy. According to a journal kept by one of Christian's followers, the Tahitians were actually kidnapped when Christian set sail without warning them, the purpose of this being to acquire the women.The mutineers passed through the Fiji and Cook Islands, but feared that they would be found there. Continuing their quest for a safe haven, on 15 January 1790 they rediscovered Pitcairn Island, which had been misplaced on the Royal Navy's charts.
After the decision was made to settle on Pitcairn, livestock and other provisions were removed from Bounty. The mutineers remained undetected on Pitcairn until February 1808, when sole remaining mutineer John Adams and the surviving Tahitian women and their children were discovered by the Boston sealer Topaz, commanded by Captain Mayhew Folger of Nantucket, Massachusetts. Seventeen years later, in 1825, HMS Blossom, on a voyage of exploration under Captain Frederick William Beechey, arrived on Christmas Day off Pitcairn and spent 19 days there.Captain Beechey later recorded this in his 1831 published account of the voyage, as did one of his crew, John Bechervaise, in his 1839 Thirty-Six years of a Seafaring Life by an Old Quarter Master. Beechey wrote a detailed account of the mutiny as recounted to him by the last survivor, Adams. Bechervaise, who described the life of the islanders, says he found the remains of Bounty and took some pieces of wood from it which were turned into souvenirs such as snuff boxes. The details of the voyage of HMAV Bounty are very well documented, largely due to the effort of William Bligh to maintain an accurate log before, during, and after the actual mutiny. Bligh's original log remained intact throughout his ordeal and was used as a major piece of evidence in his own trial for the loss of the Bounty as well as the subsequent trial of captured mutineers.
The original log is presently maintained at a museum in New South Wales with available transcripts in both print and electronic format. 1787 16 August: William Bligh is ordered to command a breadfruit gathering expedition to Tahiti 3 September: HMAV Bounty launched from the drydock at Deptford 49 October: Bounty navigated with a partial crew to an ammunition loading station, south of Deptford 1012 October: Onload of arms and weapons at Long Reach 15 October 4 November: Navigated to Spithead for final crew and stores onload 29 November: Made anchor at St Helens, Isle of Wight 23 December: Departed English waters for Tahiti 1788 510 January: Anchored off Tenerife, Canary Islands 5 February: Crossed equator at 21.50 degrees West 26 February: Marked at 100 leagues from the eastern coast of Brazil 23 March: Arrived Tierra del Fuego 9 April: Entered the Strait of Magellan 25 April: Abandoned attempt to round Cape Horn and turned east 22 May: Within sight of the Cape of Good Hope 24 May 29 June: Anchored at Simon's Bay 28 July: Within sight of Saint Paul's Island, west of Van Diemen's Land 20 August 2 September: Anchored Van Diemen's Land 19 September: Past the southern tip of New Zealand 26 October: Arrived Tahiti 25 December: Shifted moores to Owharre Harbor, Huahine, Society Islands 1789 4 April: Weighed anchor from Huahine 2325 April: Anchored for provisions off Annamooka (Tonga) 26 April: Departed Annamooka for the West Indies 28 April: Mutiny on the Bounty.

Royal Navy uniforms were often used to denote rank and position on board ships; however, uniforms were not worn daily on board while Bounty was underway due to the lengthy and isolated voyage.Next below the commissioned officers came the warrant officers, such as the sailing master, surgeon, boatswain, purser, and gunner, who were as likely to be considered skilled tradesmen as gentlemen. As the senior warrant officer, the sailing master and his mates were entitled to berth with the lieutenants in the wardroom (though, in this case, there were no lieutenants there); other warrant officers berthed in the gunroom. Like commissioned officers, warrant officers had the right of access to the quarterdeck and were immune from punishment by flogging. They held their warrants directly from the navy, and the captain could not alter their rank.
Roman Catholics were allowed to serve as warrant officers, but not as commissioned officers. Below the warrant officers came the petty officers. The petty officers included two separate groups: young gentlemen training to be future commissioned officers, often serving as midshipmen or master's mates, and tradesmen working as skilled assistants to the warrant officers. The young gentlemen technically were ratings, holding a rank below warrant officers at the mercy of the captain but, as aspiring future commissioned officers, they were considered socially superior and were often given a watch (with authority over some warrant officers) or a minor command. Finally, at the bottom of the hierarchical tree were the seamen, divided into able seamen and ordinary seamen.Aboard some vessels, an even lower grade existed called landsmen who were seamen-in-training with very little or no naval skill. In the immediate wake of the mutiny, all but four of the loyal crew joined Captain Bligh in the long boat for the voyage to Timor, and eventually made it safely back to England, unless otherwise noted in the table below. Four were detained against their will on Bounty for their needed skills and for lack of space on the long boat. Nine mutineers continued their flight from the law and eventually settled Pitcairn Island, where all but one died before their fate became known to the outside world.

Discovery of the wreck of Bounty. Rudder in the Fiji Museum Luis Marden discovered the remains of Bounty in January 1957. After spotting remains of the rudder (which had been found in 1933 by Parkin Christian, and is still displayed in the Fiji Museum in Suva), he persuaded his editors and writers to let him dive off Pitcairn Island, where the rudder had been found. Despite the warnings of one islander Man, you gwen be dead as a hatchet!
 He subsequently met with Marlon Brando to counsel him on his role as Fletcher Christian in the 1962 film Mutiny on the Bounty. Later in life, Marden wore cuff links made of nails from Bounty. Marden also dived on the wreck of HMS Pandora and left a Bounty nail with Pandora. Some of Bounty's remains, such as the ballast stones, are still partially visible in the waters of Bounty Bay. The last of Bounty's 4-pounders was recovered in 1998 by an archaeological team from James Cook University and was sent to the Queensland Museum in Townsville to be stabilised through lengthy conservation treatment, i.
