"We tied all our boats together so as to form a large object on the water, which would be seen quicker than a single boat by a passing vessel. We divided the passengers of our boat amongst the other four, and then taking one man from each boat so as to make a crew, we rowed away amongst the wreckage, as we heard cries for help in that direction."

-Seaman Joseph Scarrott
