Sometimes brave pirates could steal ships: "Calico Jack" Rackham was cornered by Spanish gunships one night when he and his men rowed over to a sloop the Spanish had captured. After numerous speeches by the top brass of the Nazi party, the widow Hedwig Gustloff breaks the traditional bottle on the bow to christen the ship. The year after that, its success brought in $7.9 million, and the year after that $49 million. The smallest known ship to have participated in "Operation Dynamo" is the 15' open fishing boat TAMZINE, which is now in the Imperial War Museum.

The little creatures seemed indifferent as to life or death, and when they were carried on deck, many of them could not stand. At that point, MacGregor considered the fact that a captain would most likely order a ship abandoned within sight of land. The strap or line that secured the neck of the rudder to the hull was loosened and released, allowing the rudder to rotate around the securing line and boss.
