The HMS Bounty

This ship was built for the 1962 version of the film "Mutiny on the Bounty" with Marlon Brando. It's still seaworthy. In the distance you can see the dry dock at the Bath Iron Works.

This wheel is actually famous for showing up in a number of Hollywood movies. Clark Gable and John Wayne, among others, have played captain with it.

The ship also showed up in one of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, so naturally I had to strike a pirate pose.

Reaching a pretty, isolated spot like this one makes the hike worth it.
