14 rescued, 2 missing from HMS Bounty off N.C. coast
From NBS News - A search was under way Monday for two crew members of the stricken ship HMS Bounty, which sank off the coast of North Carolina, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
Earlier Monday, two Coast Guard helicopters rescued 14 people from life rafts after they were forced to abandon ship.
They were flown to Air Station Elizabeth City in North Carolina where they were met by awaiting emergency medical services personnel, the Coast Guard said.
An aircraft was on the scene, searching for the two missing crew members, with a Jayhawk helicopter en route to assist.

"It appears that two crew members didn't make it on to the life rafts," Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Michael Patterson told NBC News. The Coast Guard was speaking with the rescued crew members to find out more details.
The ship issued a distress signal late Sunday after taking on water, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a release.
The owner of the 180-foot, three mast ship -- which was built for the 1962 Marlon Brando movie, "Mutiny on the Bounty" -- lost communication with the crew and alerted the Coast Guard to the situation.
The Coast Guard then received a distress signal from the ship showing its position. It sent out an aircraft to speak with the crew, which reported that the vessel was taking on water and had no propulsion. It was located about 90 miles southeast of Hatteras, N.C.
“The 16 people donned cold water survival suits and life jackets before launching in two 25-man lifeboats with canopies,” the Coast Guard said in the statement. It had earlier reported that there were 17 people aboard the ship.
The director of the HMS Bounty Organization, Tracie Simonin, said that the tall ship left Connecticut last week for St. Petersburg, Fla. The crew had been in constant contact with the National Hurricane Center and tried to go around the storm, she said.
The ship, now reportedly underwater, was earlier surrounded by 18-foot seas and 40 mph winds as Hurricane Sandy moves through the area.

On October 24th, 1899 on Lake Superior, ninety-foot long, the three-masted schooner Criss Grover ran aground and wrecked near Split Rock Island—eleven years before the Split Rock Lighthouse first lit. Enroute from Bay Mills, Michigan, to Duluth with a load of lumber, the Grover ran into gale or thick fog (accounts differ) and struck a reef near the island. Divers today can see its hull and anchor in about 53 feet of water near the Island. No one was killed, and the next day the crew began stripping it of any reusable items—the vessel was so rotten and damaged it was deemed not worth salvaging. Launched in 1878, the schooner was known among Lake Superior mining towns as a “powder boat,” as she often hauled blasting powder and dynamite to mining and lumber camps when no other vessel would. It wasn’t the first time the Grover had run aground. In 1880 she had also come ashore with heavy damage in Lake Huron near AuSable, Michigan. The wreck was declared a total loss, but she was salvaged and returned to action. Unfortunately, life-saving efforts during that incident proved fatal—for one of the volunteer rescuers. A local judge was manning a small canon that propelled tow lines to the floundering vessel when the cannon exploded, killing him.

The camera at the new location atop the Great Lakes Aquarium needs to have its antenna aligned better. The camera at the Lafarge site is still there, just having technical difficulties.
I will be working on these issue next week.
Sorry about the inconvenience.
