slowly heading for Endeavour Reef

Over the past several weeks Cook has headed for trouble. Negotiating the difficult passage through the reef. The Endeavour hits some rock on June 10 and limps to shore arriving at Cooktown. The crew manage to hold the leaks though at one point Parkinson and Banks both comment on the distance they are from home should they be wrecked, a long way from home and among "savages".

Big Cook Statue at Cairns Backpackers. The statue is now outside the rubble of the demolished backpacker hostel and is waiting to be moved somewhere. Students at James Cook University have requested it for their campus but are still awaiting approval. The developer of the site is happy to give away the statue for removal cost only.
