HMS Bounty USS Mississippi
Crew from the U.S. Navy Virginia class attack submarine USS Mississippi (SSN 782) climb the rigging during a sail aboard the square rigged sailing ship HMS Bounty Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 off New London, Conn. The Mississippi crew was invited on the sail by Bounty owner Robert Hansen after he toured the Navy sub base in Groton last year. The crew of the Bounty enlisted the help of the Mississippi crew to raise the sails and trim them during a two-hour sail in Long Island Sound. The Bounty, built in 1960 for the 1962 feature film "Mutiny on the Bounty" starring Marlon Brando is a replica of the famous square-rigged British trading vessel from the 19th century.
