The crossing of the S.S. Leaky was not without incident. Before arriving at Helminth House on Ile Amsterdam, the crew recorded the following incidents:
  • One sink in the galley disappeared.
  • Said sink was replaced with a different style of sink by persons unknown.
  • New sink did not function properly and was known to scald those who used it at random.
  • New sink was removed and placed in storage.
  • Sink has disappeared from storage.
  • Sink keeps showing up at random locations across the ship.
  • Crew reports that the sink would speak to them when found, asking not to be placed in storage.
  • Sink allowed to roam free.
  • Sink joins crew's Tuesday poker games.
  • Sink has won over $3,200 and is suspected of cheating.
  • Sink caught with ace up U-Bend and banned from poker.
  • Seaman Lester found murdered, sink suspected.
  • Beautiful whale spotted north of ship.
  • Sink arrested but refuses to speak.
  • Sink convinces guard to let him free due to seasickness, guard found knocked out. Sink missing.
  • Life raft missing.
  • Seaman Lester buried at sea.
  • Sink not seen again, suspected to have left ship.
  • Docked. Life raft found on Ile Amsterdam, no sign of sink.
