1 August, 1770

 

On 1 August, 1770, James Cook wrote “Carpenters employ'd overhauling the Pumps all of which we find in a state of decay, and this the Carpenter says is owing to the sap having been left on which in time has decay'd the sound wood. One of them is quite useless and was so rotten when hoisted up as to drop to pieces, however I cannot complain of a leaky ship for the most water she makes is not quite an Inch an hour”.

 

Joseph Banks wrote “During the Night it Blew as hard as ever; the Day was rainy with less wind but still not moderate enough for our undertakings”.
