Very helpful for my school project.
Brian, according to the ship's log the Grenville ran onto a rock after turning into the mouth of Long Harbour. It took a while to get the ship afloat, after which they moored in a small cove whilst the ship was checked. This cove is thought to be the present day Anderson's Cove. Extracts from the log of the Grenville can be found in John Robson's book (2009) "Captain Cook's War and Peace, 1755-1768."
Good-day,The Grenville ran aground July 21st 1765 not very far from my hometown in Newfoundland. Using depth chartsI have come to an educated guess as to the exact location. However, without the logbook entries I cannot tell exactly where or the circumstances surrounding the grounding and subsequent refloating. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank You.
