We picked Scott up from the airport this afternoon and went down to the Trinity Inlet to see the replica, launched in 1994, of the Endeavor ship while it was in port. It was an overcast day as we toured the ship that Captain Cook and Mr. Banks sailed on. Mr. Joseph Banks was a naturalist who funded most of the exploration and collected plant samples as they explored. Others who joined them on their journey were Charles Green an astronomer and 2 artists, Sydney Parkenson & Alexander Buchan. The New Zealand 50 cent piece has the Endeavor on it. The volunteers explained the different areas in the ship and items on board. There was 39 km of rigging.
