arrived Port Adelaide on 12-01-1849

One of the passengers wrote "that the 'Samuel Boddington', whilst having a pilot on board, heeled on her anchor below the bar. The watercasks were all started aft, and all the passengers ordered forward to lighten the vessel astern, and by those means she was got off. The captain said the event would have involved an expense of 1000." (this was reported in the October 10,1849 issue of the South Australian REGISTER)
