This image provided by the US Coast Guard shows The HMS Bounty, a 180-foot sailboat, is shown submerged in the Atlantic Ocean during Hurricane Sandy, approximately 90 miles southeast of Hatteras, North Carolina, October 29, 2012. Of the 16-person crew, the Coast Guard rescued 14, recovered a woman and is searching for the captain of the vessel. The crew abandoned the 55-meter (180-foot) three-mast ship, built in 1960 for the film "Mutiny on the Bounty" starring Marlon Brando that came out two years later, before it sank in the fierce seas, its owner said. This voyage, with the ship's permanent, paid crew, left from Connecticut last week and had been due to arrive in Florida on November 10. The ship was off the coast of North Carolina when it radioed in a distress call October 28.
