Left: the schooner Grenville was Cook's first command.

Right: in 1768 the British Admiralty decided to send a survey to the South Seas and allowed Cook to chose his own ship, instead of a warship or frigate he chose a slower more reliable type, a Whitbey collier which he knew from his youth.

Bottom: when HMS Endeavour was damaged by the Great Barrier Reef Cook managed to find a bay on the north coast of Queensland where he careened her to repair the damage.
