Source:Memoirs of Hydrography. Entry for Lieutenant James Grant
Details:The voyage of discovery of Lieutenant Grant, apparently undertaken with less than the usual amount of high patronage, has, in consequence, been greatly overlooked; it was singular in more respects than one. Captain Schank R.N., seems to have been in about the year 1800, a strong advocate for building small vessels in watertight compartments, and with sliding keels or centre boards. Under his direction the Lady Nelson of 60 tons was ordered to be so fitted, and the ultimate service allotted to her, was that of exploring the sea limits of the territory of New South Wales
