One of the ships used in Pirates of the Caribbean was sunk by Hurricane Sandy!

Bounty (popularly HMS Bounty) was an enlarged reconstruction of the original 1787 Royal Navy sailing ship HMS Bounty. Built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 1960, she sank off the coast of North Carolina during Hurricane Sandy on 29 October 2012.

At one point in her life, lack of maintenance caused the vessel to temporarily lose her United States Coast Guard license, but Bounty was restored. The vessel's bottom planking was restored at the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in 2002.

Moored in her winter home in St. Petersburg, Florida, she again became available for charter, excursions, sail-training, and movies including Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

This ship surely had a lot of action throughout it's life! May the ship rest in peace!
