As a salute to the U.S. Coast Guard presence in Astoria, the 295' barque Eagle will tie up to our dock for an overnight stay on the 22 nd of June. Deck tours are scheduled from 1 :00 to 10:00 P.M. She is a rare visitor to the West Coast, and we are honored to have her in Astoria. The Eagle has over 21,000 square feet of sail and over 20 miles of rigging. This is the largest sailing ship to tie up in Astoria since the visit ofU.S.S. Constitution in 1931. This is an event no

Our third visitor of the year will be one of the world's finest sailing replicas, H.M. Bark Endeavour. This ship was built to the same specifications as Captain Cook's famous first ship of discovery, making her one of the most outstanding replicas in the world. Visiting from July 24th until the 2 nd of August, Astoria will be Endeavour's only port of call on the Columbia River.

For most of us the age of sail is not a personal experience. Although much of the language survives, few of us have spent time on a deck looking aloft at a full sized sailing ship. After all, how often can our children, nieces, nephews or grandchildren, and for that matter our friends, have access to one of these incredible machines? Through unique circumstances, the Museum is able to bring to Astoria not just one such ship, but three unforgettable vessels!

For centuries the education of sailors took the form of hands-on learning. It was a direct process based upon doing as opposed to

During Endeavour's visit we will need a crew of volunteers to help visitors tour the vessel. Training sessions, materials, and a vessel orientation will be provided. Anyone volunteering for four watches onboard will receive an Endeavour polo shirt . If you are interested in being part of Endeavour's shore crew while she is in Astoria, please call Patricia Turner Custard at the Museum to place your name on the volunteer list. Be a part of this special event and sign up today!

The first question for the Fremantle project team was "What is a replica?" Some


Captain Cook departed Plymouth, England in 17 68 in command of His Majesty's Bark Endeavour on a scientific voyage of Discovery for the King of England and the Royal Society of London. Assigned to view the Transit of Venus (see sidebar) and look for new lands, people, flora and fauna, Cook would discover more unknown worlds than any other maritime explorer.

The Trans it of Venus


The Columbia River Maritime Museum is proud to host the H.M. Bark Endeavour, a replica of Captain Cook's vessel, during her North American tour. Sponsored by the National Geographic Society, the Endeavour will be in Astoria July 23rd through August 2, 1999.

The story of the replica Endeavour is written by Antonia Macarthur and John Longley, from the H.M. Bark Endeavour Foundation in Association with the National Geographic Society

vessel for a long voyage. Her huge hold would be able to carry all the necessary food and equipment, and the ship was flat bottomed, making the vessel easy to repair at any sandy beach. A crew of 92 would call this small ship home for over three years.

This issue of the Quarterdeck features the replica Endeavour, a vessel built two centuries later, but sharing a common spirit of discovery and adventure.

By calculating the time it took the planet Venus to travel across the sun, scientists had hoped to be able to find the distance of the sun from earth. This measurement would have been the first step in measuring the universe. The results were disappointing, such a measurement would not be made until the invention of a more accurate telescope.

Volunteers Needed

Over two centuries later, the voyages of Captain James Cook, R.N. still remain as one of the greatest maritime explorations ever undertaken.

The vessel chosen for such an incredible voyage was a small merchant coal carrier named the Earl of Pembroke, soon outfitted and renamed Endeavour. She was the ideal

The task of building any replica from a bygone era raises many questions. What was the original like; can we find the tradesmen and women with the requisite skills; can we obtain the materials; how much will it cost; how long will it take? When the replica in question is a 550-ton, 1gth century wooden sailing ship that needs to be fully operational in a 20th century world, the questions can seem to be insurmountable.

A compromise was found and the following criteria were agreed: The ship would be


exhaustively researched for historical accuracy. Materials were chosen for the greatest longevity, but would not be allowed to compromise the original method of construction, nor the spirit of the ship. Modem tools would be used when required . A minimum of modem equipment would be installed for safe navigation and the health of the crew. With these criteria in place, it was time to build Endeavour.

argued that to be a true replica, the ship had to be built from exactly the same materials as the original, using the same tools and with no additions nor alterations. This was a noble position to take but one which would create tremendous financial, maintenance and safety problems for the future.

Research showed that the original vessel was built of oak, with an elm keel and most likely Baltic pine for her decks, topsides, masts and spars. Oak is very susceptible to rot and to attack from marine borers, particularly in tropical waters. The original ship had survived only 29 years, whereas the replica would have to sail for 40-odd years. Here was our next problem none of these woods were available in the sizes required, nor at a cost that could be met. We decided to use local wood- the West Australian hardwood j arrah replaced oak, Douglas fir replaced the Baltic pine. Several other woods were used including karri, wandoo, blackbutt, tallow wood and tuart, with sheoak for the blocks. Some timber was specifically cut for the ship, however we purchased recycled wood whenever possible, from a redundant timber bridge, an old wheatbin, a war-time munitions factory, a woolstore and even a disused nunnery! Huge pieces of timber which had been felled during road construction work, were cut into supporting knees, together with


It was impossible to find the huge timbers needed for the early construction stage and these had to be laminated. One inch jarrah boards were stacked together, cut to the required shape, taken apart and then glued back together; it was rather like doing a gigantic three dimensional jig-saw puzzle. All of the laminated wood was eventually covered with planking. To be faithful to the original construction, the floors and bends were made separately and fastened together with chocks. As the ship progressed, less lamination was needed, and the recycled materials were used for the breast hooks and deck fittings. All the external planking is solid timber, except the large curved wale around the bow and the planking immediately above. The original method of fastening was by large iron bolts. We copied this method, but to make them longer lasting we galvanized and threaded them on one end only, to obtain a

In 1768 H.M . Bark Endeavour carried five boats, a longboat, pinnace, yawl, and two small skiffs, one for the boatswain, the other belonging to Joseph Banks. These were usually stowed inside one another on the boat booms, while the heavier longboat was probably kept on top of the main hatch. As the replica is required to carry modem rescue craft, we do not have the space to include

Designs for these were based on original plans and a drawing by one of the artists who sailed with Cook. All carving was done by hand, and finished ashore before fitting to the ship. The reason for the sailor's heads on the carrick bits is not known; perhaps they were to show what a real 18 th century sailor looked like! The modem paints and varnishes used to protect the hull, were matched to original 18 th century colors indicated by the research program.

really tight joint. In places where threaded rod would show, copper rod was riveted over clench plates.

All planking was fastened in the traditional manner using thousands of trunnels (wood nails). However, below the waterline and at the ends of the planks coach bolts were used instead of iron spikes for added security. As each piece of timber was shaped it was treated first with an epoxy-based preservative and finally red lead.

Working on the Endeavour, they learn how to sail and live on an 18th century ship. This experience includes working the rigging, over 120' tall, and sleeping in the seaman's hammocks in the crews quarters!

The traditional skills of the blacksmith and the wood carver were used extensively throughout the ship. A blacksmith shop was built at the Fremantle yard and all the iron fittings including bolts, hooks, spikes, plates, mast straps, iron bound blocks, door hinges, the two stoves, the stem lantern and over 30 hanging lanterns were reproduced.

Gail Rogers

Unlike other replica ships, many of which have scaled down rigs for ease of handling, Endeavour's rig is exactly the same size as the original The question of how she would sail was one we constantly asked during the six years of construction . In retrospect we need never have concerned ourselves with the question. The Endeavour is a thoroughbred, her design having evolved over many years of sailing the treacherous North Sea. From the first day we sailed she was sea kindly, dry, easily driven, forgiving and surprisingly fast. In ideal conditions, 25-30 knots aft of beam, Endeavour sails in excess of9 knots, and she tacks through about 160 degrees.

In a testiment to the accuracy and construction of the replica, Captain James Cook spoke confidently of Endeavour in 1771 as "No Sea can hurt her laying too under a mail sail or a rnizon ballanc' d''.

Books from The Museum Store

The Third Voyage of Captain Cook , by Heinrich Zimmermann. Ye Galleon Press 1988 Originally published in 1783 and translated from a French version. The first English translation of this volume was in 1926-one hundred and forty-three years after its first publication. Zimmerman, who appears as 'coxswain' on the muster roll of the H.M. Discovery was in the habit of keeping a small diary or jotting down notes to refresh his memory, which he did not surrender as commanded by the Admiralty of all journals kept while on board. Some of the dates conflict with those published in other authorized accounts, and there is some question as to how much official information a coxswain would be privileged to. Zimmermann's journal should be viewed as an account as perceived by a common hand signed before the mast. A rare manuscript published in a lot of 500. 128 pg. HB 29.95/26.96

Captain James Cook, a Biography , by Richard Hough W.W. Norton Pub. 1994 A meticulously researched narrative that captures the excitement of Cook as a link between the vague scientific speculations of the early eighteenth century and the industrial revolution to come . Hough has consulted archives in England, Australia, and New Zealand and had traveled in Cook's wake from Alaska to Tasmania. The result of his research is an immensely readable biography, full of new insights into one of the world's greatest mariners 398 pg. PB 15.00/13.50.
