the Gunner & Crew had to swim for
their lives. Dibbs in the afternoon
went in the Cutter to try & pass
a line but came back reporting
that the surf extended too far
out. in the evening the sea went
down somewhat. 2 guns were
fired to call the boats but they
did not come .

Sunday Decr. 5th. 1858

Heavy sea on last night rolled
tremendously like to smash everything
on board. Not much wind but there
is evidently a gale somewhere in
the Bay from the heavy sea
as seen this morning. The surf
having done down considerably
Dibbs went off in the Cutter to
try to pass a line for the boats.
We soon saw the jolly coming
off having got here easily off
when the sea went down
