"Reading about Cook's voyage up Australia's Great Barrier Reef, aboard the ENDEAVOR, reminds me of our voyage up the inside of the Barrier Reef aboard DIRECTION. There are thousand of reefs upon which one could lose a boat in those waters. Even with our full set of charts, which detailed the numerous aides to navigation, we had to pay strict attention at all times. I find it miraculous that Cook--who had no charts--only hit bottom once during his trip up the Reef."
