Cap'n Beaky the ever vigilant skipper of the Fern INS 122, having cast a glance at the horizon from his home at the top of Penzance (background) that morning spotted this container! After rushing to the boat, steaming out miles south of the bay he towed in the container, claiming salvage - of course he should have thought, maybe just a little, as to why the container had not sunk - it was full of cork stoppers - all shapes and sizes! James RH Stevenson makes her way out to sea behind.
