    Is there any technical reason to use a boat only half the size? I know they are only using four men. Can a crew of four man a bigger boat?

    I wonder just how much Lt Bligh would have known of the new convict settlement at Port Jackson (Sydney).

    The First Fleet left London at about the same time as the 'Bounty' and the new colony was reasonably well established by April 1789 when Bligh's voyage to Timor began.

    It would have been a lot shorter and easier.

    One of the most impressive feats of navigation in history I believe.

    Recreating Bligh's famous sea voyage

    Four men have set sail in the South Pacific in their bid to recreate the epic 7,000 km (4,350 mile) voyage of Captain William Bligh.
    Captain Bligh was cast adrift after the famous mutiny on the Bounty in 1789.
