10. What was different about the dinghy Josh Pike (?) rowed into Sydney Harbour? : It was shaped like a guitar

And for getting the last question correct Jinx is a certified trivia legend.

I don't even know who Josh Pike is let alone that he had a dinghy, or indeed that it was shaped like a guitar.
