An introduction

Hello Forum Members.

My name is Simon Brown. I'm a diver and underwater photographer with an interest for all things submerged.

I now work in the world of underwater photogrammetry - creating 3D models from hundreds or thousands of 2D images. These models can be scaled and embedded with GPS data, enabling shipwrecks to be studied from the comfort of your armchair.

Last summer I scanned the SS Thistlegorm (see and worked on several National Geographic Channel projects, including the Port Royal programme Drain the Pirate City. I'm also involved with for things closer to home.

More about me and my work can be seen at

Barquentine New Endeavor

I was on the crew of the New Endeavor when it left Sydney in a gale to go to the Moomba Festival in either 1966 or 67.
Looking for fellow crew members. Anybody remember who the captain was for this voyage? Would like to share recollections of the trip.
