One peaceful evening in the Bahamas, Burt and Frances left their C&C 43 on a mooring and went ashore to Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Later that night, they jumped into their dinghy, but the boat wasn’t where they thought it should be. Somewhat disturbed and blaming the moonless night, they borrowed a strong spotlight from another boat. Now they knew the boat was gone. After an increasingly desperate search, they found it behind the rocks of Thunderball Cave. The currents run fast through the cuts of the Exuma Cays, and the boat somehow bounced off the rocks, got swept toward the banks, and anchored itself by its 8-foot-deep fin keel. In the end, Burt and Frances thought themselves lucky; long, deep scratches in the once-shiny topsides were the only damage.
