Fishermen called us "byes" and kept tossing fresh fi sh and , on one occasion, lobsters into our cockpit. In our ignorant way we asked the way to a restaurant. They didn ' t know what the word meant, and when we told them "a place to eat," they took us into their kitchens to sup with them. On the way back westward , we broke our rudder in a stupid and rather frightening accident, running across a steel fishnet cable in the darkness in a blow. We then staggered and lurched our way across the sea to the fishing village of Ingomar, where we ' d stayed a few days on the way east. Instead of throwing us out as bums, the men there fashioned a new rudder, fastening it to the old with long rusty iron hinges from a barn door. It isn't pretty, they said, but it will get you .t home. We thought it was beautiful.

Mr. Stanford, editor of this magazine, recently became part owner of Whi sper again, thanks to the zeal ofhis son Anthony who bought the old boat to restore and sail again.

Whisper's pram tagged faithfully astern most of the time. On longer hops we put it across the cockpit forward, where it served as a kind of doghouse . I wedged myself under it to get out of the noise and battering of wind and spume when hove-to in the Bay of Fundy, with the barometer on my knee.
