I still have two pics to post, I understood that the ships cutter was lost along with eight crew while looking for fresh water, I assumed that they had probably made shore and were lost some time after, so I built a diorama of the boat on the beach along with the eight crew waiting for the tide to come back in so they could return to the ship, Matthew Flinders named the area Cape Catastrophe.

Hi John,
I really like the way you broke from the traditional ship in a glass case. Where did you find all the sailors? Were they impressed from the local pub? RRRR :text-lol:
