Whitby Rock Scar

On the painfully slow and perilous journey to the shore that seemed so close, the ship’s last lifeboat was in danger of capsizing several times. The line continually caught on the rocks as they neared The Scar and finally became so entangled that Second Officer Gwynn was forced to cut it to save the lives of the eight on board.
