From the log of SERENDIPITY, April 10, 1961
El Morro is abeam and we are having a better day than Sir Francis Drake who was driven away from the fortress in 1595 with a cannon shot through his cabin. For us it has been 13-1/2 days from Nassau, sailing 819 NM at an average of 2-1/2 kt. Only after we reach the murky harbor water do we lose sight of the three pilot fish that have been our companions for 13 days. Three buckets hold components of our engine, which sputtered its last in Nassau Harbor.
