Waratah - Kangaroo Island

The Sydney Morning Herald, Wednesday 8 February, 1911
Trott, a cook on the maiden voyage, saidthe vessel grounded on Kangaroo Island,and took six hours to refloat.
Mr Stephens, representing Lunds, contradicted this statement, and said the Waratah'slog showed she was never less than 10 milesdistant of Kangaroo Island on the way out.On the return voyage she passed three miles distant.

One does wonder about these conflicting reports. Stanley Robinson further enhances the mystery in his excellent post:
