Sail on an Adventure of a lifetime
on HMB Endeavour
First conceived in 1987 and finally
commissioned in 1994, HMB Endeavour,
replica of Captain James Cook’s famous
ship, today epitomises the sea going
history of Australia. Recognised as one of
the finest replica sailing ships in the world,
Endeavour sails the Australian coast calling
at a variety of ports.
Opportunities exist for members of the
public to experience sailing this magnificent
ship. As well as providing a historical
experience, Endeavour is a well-founded
example of the world’s tall ship fleet and for
those who wonder what life at sea was like
in the 18th centur y, there is no better way to
find out than to sail with her.
Later this year, Endeavour sails to Brisbane
and back and in Januar y next year she sails to
Victoria and South Australia. Voyage legs are
generally ten days although shorter voyages

Pettit’s Vivid Antifouling
which is suitable for most
underwater hulls including
aluminium has just been re-released into
the Australian marine market as part of
Altex Yacht & Boat antifouling range and is
With an outstanding performance
reputation over many seasons in the USA,
Australian, New Zealand and Pacific Islands
markets it is now available again to the
Australian boat owner.
Hard paints offer the ability to wet-sand
or burnish the finish smooth, while many
ablative paints can self-polish over time.
Vivid antifouling paint combines the
best attributes of both hard and ablative
technologies. Vivid works by leaching out the
toxicants just as a traditional hard paint does,
however, once the toxicant is gone, the paint
film will break down in water and “powder off”
exposing a new layer of toxicant.
This self-polishing surface can be
burnished to a porcelain-like racing finish.
