Missing HMS Bounty Captain Been With Ship Since 1995

One of two people still missing from the sinking of the HMS Bounty is the ship's captain, Robin Walbridge.

The ship's website says the St. Petersburg, Florida native has been associated with the Bounty since 1995, helping to restore the ship and keep it from sinking while at dock in Fall River, Massachusetts.

But the website says Walbridge's career highlight was the guest captain/advisor for the U.S.S. Constitution's inaugural sail back in 1997 after being dormant for 116 years. Walbridge spent two years training the crew of "Old Ironsides" and sailed that historic ship 15 times.
