The storm was over, and less than a mile away was “Fisherman’s Cove,” where Molly decided to anchor and check the boat for damage & the passengers for injuries.”

Episode 41:

The help teams return to the main cabin. They only found a couple of minor injuries among the passengers & crew—easily tended to by Crewman Armstrong. It’s what they didn’t find…

“Have any of you guys seen Boomer, Jay and Daisy?” Maggie asked as the storm ended.

The “B” cabins are located near the Sparrow’s stern, the area assigned to Bob and Ines:

“I checked their cabin,” Bob said with a stricken look on his face, “they weren’t there. Knowing them, I expected they may have gone to the pilothouse to help.”

“They, or rather, Boomer, is writing this story,” Sarah offered, a glimmer of hope in her eyes, “they must be OK, right?”

“Where’s my Daisy?” Lysa asked, more or less to herself, as the passengers began filtering into the main cabin.

Meanwhile, in the pilothouse, Captain Halloran, 1st Officer Guudlender and 2nd Officer McIntyre were taking stock of the Sparrow’s condition after the storm.

“Reports are coming in, Molly,” “Trigg” Guudlender announced, the boat appears to have weathered the storm very well.”

“How about the passengers,” Molly asked, “Any news yet?”

“Just coming in now, Molly” Mac rumbled, “everyone seems to be OK, just some minor scrapes & bruises—wait…”

“What is it?” Molly demanded, noting the concern in Mac’s voice.

“It seems,” Mac began, “Jay, Boomer & Daisy are not accounted for!”

“They’ve checked the whole boat?”

“That’s what they are saying.”

In fact, they hadn’t checked ALL of the boat…

Atop the Pilothouse after the Storm ©2007 New CodgersWhat a ride, Jack!” Jay exclaimed, draining his mug of organically & shade grown, fair trade, Danger Bay roast coffee, “This was a great idea!”

“Yep,” Boomer replied, “Ya just can’t appreciate nature’s fury from inside the boat—Right Daisy?”
