HMS Bounty - Portsmouth

Right for those members who believe in Courts-Martial, summary dealings and floggings et al for those who have been found guilty despite Ribnets eminent barrack room lawyer TimW, (Rupert B-Smith v Ribnet) (The Lulworth one v Ribnet) (The Fareham lifejacker v Ribnet) here is your opportunity to experience nearly the real thing.

The splashed copy of HMS Bounty will be visiting the greatest city in the South this weekend.

HMS Bounty, famous for the 1789 mutiny between Captain Bligh and Master Mate Fletcher Christian in the South Pacific, returns to Portsmouth Harbour on September 28th around 1PM for a short visit and will be open to the public on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th. Re-created by MGM in 1960 for the movie, Mutiny on the Bounty, the 47-year old, three-masted sailing ship is on a voyage to replicate her namesake’s journey to Tahiti, which started from Portsmouth on 23rd December 1787, almost 220 years ago.
During the open days at Gunwharf Quays on Saturday 29th September and Sunday 30th September, Bounty will be open to the public between 10.00 and 19.00 and tickets are priced at 5 for adults and 2.50 for children under 16. For an added spectacle, Captain Bligh and Jon Fuller will be also be on board to entertain visitors by recreating the events that led up to the mutiny.

Hi Pet, went on this at the boat show with the kids for free & if I had payed 5 I would have been right cheesed off!
It is a right old wreck & all they want to do is sell you souvenirs!
I would not recommend it!

I have to agree with Nick - Nothing wrong with that though.

We went on her at the show.

From the outside, and up on deck, she looked good, apart from the feeble Captain Jack Sparrow wannabe and his dire acting and accent. The most interesting bits of the deck at Bow and Stern were also roped off.

However below decks was a real dissapointment, just a big empty space that looked like it had been put together from old doors.

I too would be a little annoyed had I paid 15 as a family to go on board.

If it's anything like when the Bounty came to Hull, it'll be as far away from public access as possible - unless you have a ticket.
They stuck her at the far end of one of the docks where nobody except paying punters could get anywhere near.
