Endeavour at the State Pier
The crew had finished breakfast and while some were cleaning up the sleeping areas, others were reading sails. There was an attempt to sail into Portsmouth, but the wind shifted, forcing key sails to be lowered and required the replica to be motored in.
This carved head is located by a nest of ropes that snake across the deck. Endeavour has a small permanent crew, but everyone on board works, including students, paid travelers, even journalists.
