My last summer in the Navy I worked weekends on the schooner Diosa del Mar. And like the Truant she ended up on the rocks, at Catalina Island off the coast of California. It was a lost to be morned.
I enjoy crewing on her as she took passengers out to the Islands for a weekend trip. Last sailed on her Labor day of '78; Retired from the Navy Jan '79.
A lot of ships that I have sailed on over the years are no longer in service. And that is the kindest way of putting it.
