Over the next few days we met huge storms, icebergs, snow and more storms.
On the 26th some engines broke free in the hold and had to be captured before they destroyed everything in the hold. The acid worn straps had not been spotted, and must have been done by the saboteur before Melbourne, just waiting for a big enough storm to break them.
Almost everyone in the hold was slightly injured. Asmund, Archie and George trying to stop the engines rolling about, while Eric and Lucinda tied them up and Cissy called warnings.
