A3 print showing the inboard profile with fittings for Terror (1813) and Erebus (1826), both Bomb Vessels converted for polar exploration. The plan relates to the two ships as converted for the Antarctic Expedition under Captain James Clark Ross in 1839.

For the 1839 expedition HMS Erebus was completely refitted at Chatham Dockyard. She was strengthened along the hull and the bow and an internal heating system was installed.
