The 18th-century replica tall ship, called the HMS Bounty, set sail last week and ran into the powerful storm that was moving up the East Coast.

By Monday morning, the ship was taking on water and its engines failed. The crew abandoned ship off the North Carolina coast. The Coast Guard rescued 14 crew members. Another crew member died.

The ship was originally built for the 1962 film "Mutiny on the Bounty" and was featured in several other films.
