Duffus recounts how friends and relatives of Jim Baugham Gaskill of Ocracoke learned that his ship had been torpedoed off the North Carolina coast. His cousin found his third mate's license washed up on the beach, and a few days later an oar bearing the ship's name washed up at his father's inn, the Pamlico Inn. His ship, SS Caribsea, went down in three minutes on March 11, 1942; only seven survived.
