Hello my name is Gordon Perry (Jackie) I’m 92 years old, I sailed on the San Amado in 1949. I used my brothers log book, his name was Thomas Perry. I thought I was going to be doing a 6 week trip but in fact it toured around the world for 12 months. They then flew me home from Holland. No one ever knew I went on my brothers book except possibly the Captain because my brother was a Quartwe Master and I had no idea how to sail a ship. My Daughter happened upon this page and saw your Anecdote and we believe that it was to much a coincidence how similar the experience you wrote about was to my actual experience on the ship and figured we would reach out.
