Unexpected Guests

The WHOI ship Atlantis II tied up at the dock in Woods Hole on December 13, 1977, with 11 seamen rescued from the Puerto Rican freighter Ensenada on board. Sipping hot punch while waiting
to clear customs are Wilt Gardner, Carolyn Dean and five Columbian crewmen from the Ensenada, including Captain Enrique Lima Leura in the hat with braid. Next to him is Bob Godfrey and behind him are two Americans who were on the freighter: Allan Weisbecker and Peter Fried. (Photo courtesy of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Archives)
