He went for sturdy and practical vessels, preferably the one that could hold lots of provision as well as be able to be managed by a small crew if need be. Among his crew members was, Dr Green who was responsible for the scientific instruments that were used for observations used in the expedition. In his lifetime Cook went for three major voyages across the pacific, each voyage however a different purpose had and was directed to different parts of the world.
According to Simmons, (41), James Cook was only twenty-nine years old when he set for the voyage with the chilling experience. A few years to come, he was to achieve recognition for his success in preventing the loss of the men under his command to scurvy, in. It marked as one of the most outstanding accomplishment he managed to attain during his voyages and exploration around the world. Cook was always cautious. he paid close attention to the health of the ship’s company on those voyages as he had not witnessed the terrible suffering aboard Pembroke. When Cook arrived in Halifax outbreaks of scurvy were not uncommon in the city itself maybe due to lack of property rights discouraged settlers from erecting fences and cultivating home gardens and this made fresh vegetables be scarce.
