Exposed, the bawdy love boat of 1838

by
Matthew Moore

 An extraordinary tale of debauchery among officers and passengers on a emigrant ship to Australia at the height of Empire has been disclosed in a newly-discovered diary.
 The ship's captain took to sharing his bunk with two daughters of a preacher who was moving his family to Adelaide, while the rest of the crew enjoyed the company of a party of prostitutes.
 When not carousing with passengers, it seems that the officers on the Planter, which departed from Deptford, east London, in November 1838 engaged in drunken violence.
 James Bell, a junior officer, recorded the behaviour in a 225-page log that is going up for auction next month after being bought for a few pounds at a market stall.
 He wrote: "The captain was allowed to keep the daughterscompany at all hours and during the whole time of our being in warm weather our bed on deck sufficed for all three... such an example was soon followed up by all the Ship's Co: but particularly the 3 Mates [who] carried immorality to a glaring height."
 Describing an alcohol-fuelled confrontation between the captain and the ship's surgeon, he noted the "dispute ran so high as to provoke the former to knock the latter down with his fist".
 Felix Pryor, a historian who catalogued the journal on behalf of Bonhams auction house, said he was shocked by its account, expecially as Bell kept the diary for his sweetheart in Britain. "It reads like one big orgy - not something one would send to a lady," he said.
 "With all this whoring and drunkenness, it is amazing the ship ever arrived in Austraia." The log is expected to fetch 4,000 pounds in London on March 23.
