· Sportsbet offer $1.10 that Cook’s beloved ship HMS Endeavour has been found.
· Americans tipped to return the ship to Australia.
· Sydney the leading choice as the final destination for the historic vessel.
The ship wreck discovered off the coast of Rhode Island, at Newport Harbour is tipped by online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au at odds of $1.10 to be the historic HMS Endeavour belonging to Captain Cook.
The valuable find could dock nicely in a US museum but our American mates are tipped at $1.50 to return the ship to Australia for her final resting place.
That location is sure to be a major draw for tourists with Sydney the $1.40 favoured site ahead of Canberra ($3.00) or any other location paying $11.
“Shiver me timbers…who would ever have thought Cook’s Endeavour would be found let alone resurface on our lands again,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
