Doom in the Deep

Author(s): Ottar Sveinsson

Nautical - Tales

This is one of the great tales of man against the elements. In February 1968, in a howling gale blowing from the North Pole, fishermen fought desperately for their lives, hacking at the deadly ice that caked their vessels. Visibility was almost nil and communications only intermittent. When a wave swamped the hull of the trawler Ross Cleveland, she went down in minutes. It was reported that she had gone down with all hands. Yet thirty-six hours later first mate Harry Eddom was found alive, after an incredible ordeal. Swept around all night in the raging sea in a life raft with the bodies of two dead shipmates, he finally made landfall on a remote shore. After walking miles over rock and scree in a near-deserted fjord, he took shelter by an uninhabited cabin for a second long, cold night, until a young shepherd chanced upon him. Harry Eddom
