Descendants of Fletcher Christian and mutineers face losing control of South Pacific island home
Watching "Mutiny on the Bounty" and drinking a glass of wine while Teddy makes dinner. Marlon Brando sure looks young and sexy in this.Didn't he, like Fletcher Christian, get seduced by the South Pacific and stay there?
Just reached Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific. We don’t get to land on the island b/c there is really no way to land on it & it’s only inhabits about 69 people on the whole 2.5 mile island; most of them w/ the last name Christian (maybe this is where you are from Tiger, lol). But most of the people of the island came aboard our ship to hang out. Why would a cruise ship stop in such a remote place?? Well, I told you the name of the island & the surname of a number of the people. Can you guess the significance? Well if I said the HMAV Bounty was scuttled here around 223 years ago by a guy named Fletcher would that help? Yes, this is the place that Fletcher Christian & 8 other crew members of The Bounty & 4 Tahitian men & 11 Tahitian women (do the math, a couple of guys got hosed & it wasn’t the English) ran away from Tahiti after setting Captain Bligh adrift to start a new life & despite what the movies say, no one from the English Navy ever found them & they never we tried for their Mutiny ...

On this day in history... 1789 - Three weeks into a journey from Tahiti to the West Indies, the HMS Bounty is seized in a mutiny led by Fletcher Christian, the master's mate. Captain William Bligh and 18 of his loyal supporters were set adrift in a small, open boat, and the Bounty set course for Tubuai south of Tahiti. In December 1787, the Bounty left England for Tahiti in the South Pacific, where it was to collect a cargo of breadfruit saplings to transport to the West Indies. There, the breadfruit would serve as food for slaves. After a 10-month journey, the Bounty arrived in Tahiti in October 1788 and remained there for more than five months. On Tahiti, the crew enjoyed an idyllic life, reveling in the comfortable climate, lush surroundings, and the famous hospitality of the Tahitians. Fletcher Christian fell in love with a Tahitian woman named Mauatua. On April 4, 1789, the Bounty departed Tahiti with its store of breadfruit saplings. On April 28, near the island of Tonga, Christian and 25 petty offi ...
