Grubb, Henry Hobbs and Hugh Benjamin John (1894)
The plaque reads ...
Mr Henry Hobbs Grubb, aged 47, and his 13 year old son Hugh Benjamin John , of Battery Point, Hobart, were drowned when their square-sterned boat capsized in a S. W. squall, about 150 yards out from Blackman's Bay Point on 2 nd March 1894, after taking on a ballast of stone at Blackman's Bay.
A boat builder by trade, having been connected with the yachting fraternity for a large number of years, Henry was intending to go down the Channel to secure boat knees.
He was a favorite with yachtsmen, taking a great interest in anything relating to sailing crafts, and his ability as a boatbuilder was fully demonstrated by the 16ft. 6ins. yacht Wyuna , which had completely eclipsed all the other yachts of that class.
He was survived by his wife and 8 other children.
