Rescue from the Bounty

Sad that we have lost a tall ship to the storm and two of her crewmen, the replica HMS Bounty from the 1960s Brandow film, but as of last report, the USCG did what they do so well for those who got to a raft in time.
A search was under way Monday for two crew members of the stricken ship HMS Bounty, which sank off the coast of North Carolina after it was caught in Hurricane Sandy, the U.S. Coast Guard said. Earlier Monday, two Coast Guard helicopters rescued 14 people from life rafts after they were forced to abandon ship. "It appears that two crew members didn't make it onto the life rafts," Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Michael Patterson told NBC News.

Via USCG - there she is as she goes.
