Tallship Bounty Captain Still Missing

Despite Coast Guard search the Captain of the ill fated Bounty is still missing. Considering the fate of one of the female crew, I suspect the Captain was entangled in the rigging when the ship capsized. Tallships have miles of lines and cordage wrapped around belaying pins which could easily ensnared a crew member. Examining the photos the stepped masts were broken loose being hit by one would be equal to be struck by a falling telephone pole. Ed
