Captain Blighs voyage after the mutiny

Recommended Posts

I am currently enjoying the series on Channel four called "Mutiny". It is a modern re run of Captain Bligh and his crews epic after being set adrift in a small boat. A couple of questions. Blighs journal survived the voyage. Has it ever been released in book form? And what is the nearest/best kit available of the long boat? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks! Geoff

Bligh's journal in book form - not sure. Quite a few books do reference what he did after the mutiny though. He ended up as the first governor of New South Wales in Australia. 


Best kit for the long boat would be the Model Shipways kit. I did a brief discussion on the accuracy of the kit in my Bounty Launch build log (click the link in my signature).

Just a minor correction; Bligh was actually the fourth Governor of the colony of New South Wales - he suffered another mutiny when the New South Wales Corps marched on Government House on 26th January 1808 to arrest him! :(


Bligh's log is held in the State Library of New South Wales in Sydney and can be viewed on line at the following link:

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
