Great Capstans in History

Part one in a gripping new series profiling some famous, some not-so famous and (dare I type?) infamous capstans throughout history.

Going with the theme, I thought we should start with the capstan of the Bounty (not to be confused with the CAPTAIN of the Bounty). This is not, regrettably, the capstan of the original HMAV Bounty, but the recreation. Nevertheless it is still quite a fetching capstan and I'm sure Lieutenant Bligh would approve.

If you have some capstan photos or know of a capstan that deserves to be profiled, send it along and you might see your capstan in a future installment!
