Joseph Banks’ Journal
Wind fair and a fine Breeze; found the ship to be but a heavy sailer, indeed we could not expect her to be any other from her built, so are obligd to set down with this inconvenience, as a necessary consequence of her form; which is much more calculated for stowage, than for sailing.
