Coast Guard to probe loss of tall ship in hurricane

The US Coast Guard will inves­tigate the sinking of a tall ship with Massachusetts ties during Hurricane Sandy in ­October, which killed two people, officials said Thursday.

The Bounty, which called Fall River home from 1993 to 2001, was built for the 1962 movie “Mutiny on the Bounty.” It sank approximately 90 miles southeast of Hatteras, N.C., on Oct. 29 while en route to St. ­Petersburg, Fla., from New London, Conn.
