  1. Mathew Flinders and George Bass took a small, (8 foot keel) boat fitted with a sail on an exploring expedition south of Sydney in 1796. The boat was constructed in Sydney and named Tom Thumb, the second boat of this name used by Bass. This is a printed account taken from a previously little known manuscript by Flinders of the voyage.

Keith Bowden the editor, became an expert on Bass Strait history and on Flinders and Bass as a consequence. The manuscript came to light when Bowden was researching in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England. 

The introduction and context of the voyage is by Bowden.
