Is it the Bounty or the Endeavour?

I am trying to remember whether this was the Bounty or the Endeavour visiting the Cromarty Firth. Anybody any suggestions?

Trailing her is a boat from Dolphin Ecosse.

This is Endeavour Sue.

thanks ronald, I had to get time of work to see her, so glad I did, beautiful boat.

That certainly looks like the Endeavour. The bounty had two lights on the stern.

Thanks for capturing the photo, Sue; and the sacrifice, off work - well-worth it. And, you have got her at sea, with the hands aloft, working on the sails.

A good point - I never realized how similar both vessels are. Neither vessel was built as a warship per se: the Royal Navy bought them up, out of trade. Both were ship-rigged (3 masts, square sails set on each) colliers, in the grimy trade of carrying coal to London; shallow-draft and beamy; capable of stowing a large amount of stores, necessary, for the respective long voyages proposed by the Navy.

The "Endeavour" was built in 1764 as the Whitby collier "Earl of Pembroke" ; the "Bounty" in 1784, near Hull, as the collier "Bethia".

To compare today's replicas alongside, would be a bit misleading, as the "Bounty II" was built 1/3 longer, to accommodate the 70 mm cameras of Hollywood, for the movie.
