I believe this is the one a friend of mine, who knows about such things, described as 'fifty tons of firewood, badly stacked'.

That's appropriate Dave - I just looked up the history of the original Lady Nelson and in 1800 she was nicknamed "His Majesty's Tinderbox". She was the first ship to sail west to east through Bass Strait. See

I beleive she was the first ship into Port Philip Bay but not sure,(from Tasssie) she sailed back after they decided not to stay, think she went near Sorento, we had a cruise round Corio Bay on her which was quite good.
