Ships That Brave The U.S. Quarantine

The only ship in [Havana] harbour just now flying
the Red Ensign is the Magister (2,750 tons),
a cargo ship registered in the Cayman
Islands, operated from Jamaica and now
under charter to a Canadian company. She
was built in 1948 for the Baltic trade and
has tramped all over the world, including
a regular trade to American east coast ports
and the lakes.

The crew make no secret of their regret
that the Cuban charter has put her on the
American blacklist. Jamaican and Cayman
Island seamen know the United States ports
as well as any, and some of them have
worked solely in the American coastal trade
for years on end, nor do they find Cuba in
any sense exotic.

The skipper is Captain Roy Scott, whose
grandfather was shipwrecked on the Cayman
Islands and brought his family from Scot-
land to settle here.

Date of photo is approximate.
