The Wrecker: In December of 1871,[2] Bart Maverick and Paul Carthew took the Flying Scud's jolly boat to sail from Midway Island to get away from the possible murderous intentions of Captain Nares and his crew. Rigged with a sail, they hoped to get into the trade lanes as their best chance of being rescued. After four days, they were spotted by a British man-of-war and brought back to San Francisco.[3]
