Thread Name: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship?
Subject: RE: Gold.Vanity. Can you REALLY sink a ship?
Now, if the auger holes caused the ship to list, and she was unstable already - for any or all of the reasons above ....
Captain James Cook used fothering to save the "Endeavour" when she struck the Great Barrier Reef off the site of what is now Cooktown in 1770.
After all this - I'm bored with augers.
