The Skipped decides to put his unusual passengers ashore on the south end of the island before the gale increases, and Uncle John starts to row through the gap in the reef in one of the ship's boats. "Great waves were surging through the pass...the receding current caught the boat and carried it as though it had been a cork...then, a moment's horror - over and over and over...." ID289334
