Title:Out of the Mouths. . .
Article Abstract:1952, en route from Casablanca to Cadiz on a new 1,700 ton Liverpool cargo ship. Navigation was by Captain Cook's methods - compass course and log distance. Vessel arrived off 'Cadiz', Second Mate informed the Captain and the ETA was radioed to agents. The cabin boy came to the bridge, and asked where the vessel was. When told 'off Cadiz', he said that in his view, they were not off Cadiz. A quick check of the chart found the very similar Puerto Santa Maria del Bela Lugosi 15 miles down the coast from Cadiz. Hard-a-port, full ahead, and transmit a revised ETA. Thank you, Steward…
