In late February 'a proper Storm' with enormous swells forced Endeavour far away from the coast, by 2 March to about 150 miles south-east of Cape Saunders [near today's Dunedin] and to a latitude of 4.8 degrees, actually south of Stewart Island.

 A Giclée (zhee-KLAY) is a superb-quality copy of an artwork or photograph. It is made using high-end 8-to-12 colour inkjet printing techniques coupled with the use of pigment inks, archival inks which maintain image stability and colour permanence better than all other known inks.
