By the 1860s he had established himself as a mariner involved in the Queensland coastal trade and soon became renowned for his skill in marine salvage. A pioneer of the Queensland coastal and river trade, his reminiscences are an important source for the social and commercial history of early settlement in Queensland. One of Collin's lasting achievements was to mark the passage through Torres Straits with buoys under contract to the Queensland Government. Australian National Bibliography No.: 10226.
