tiny coral island. There were hardly any trees on the island and there was no water, but this did not prove to be a problem. The
men collected rain-water in the rubber dinghy. As they had brought a spear gun with them, they had plenty to eat. They caught
lobster and fish every day, and, as one of them put it 'ate like kings'. When a passing tanker rescued them five days later, both
men were genuinely sorry that they had to leave.
