BTW - Chall, you may enjoy this book I'm reading about Cook:

Blue Latitudes by T. Horwitz

It was a NYT Bestseller and really is a very good book. Man, that Cook had some serious STONES!!
Smack I have actually read it, and it was a damn good book....A friend gave it too me for Christmas year before last and it inspired me to seek out the Cook statue up at Cooktown last time I was in the northern extremities of Oz. it may be time to pull it off the shelf again for a second go.

I certainly have a real respect for and curiosity about Cook, if the dude were here now he could definitely fill up a few pages of the BFS forum.

I wonder how i should speak, since I've been at it since 1974...

Must be because I am on land all the time..you're right

Keep trying captain!!

S'truth! After reading that book, I really want to hit Cooktown for the "festival" some day. Sounds like a drunkenly, miserably, good time!
