I am aware of the Young Endeavour. A close friend was the Captain for a couple years. He used to be my Navigator on another ship. He sent my a great book on the history of the ship. Good read.

Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
