Hell Ship - The Journey of the Ticonderoga
In 1852, the emigrant vessel Ticonderoga limped into Port Phillip Bay after a nightmare voyage from England during which a quarter of her nearly 800 passengers and crew had died from typhus. As its victims - Scottish families seeking a new life - were buried hastily at sea, schools of sharks, it was said, followed the stricken vessel all the way across the Indian Ocean.
