THE ISLAND HOME OF ROBINSON CRUSOE OFF FOR THE FISHING GROUNDS AT 5 A. M. The outboard motor boats are about 25 feet long and usually carry two men. Each boat, besides gear and food, has sails and water butt. The usual trip takes twenty-four to thirty hours, but on at least one occasion a boat has had to run before a storm and could only make the mainland, nearly 400 miles away.

Schmitt LAID UP FOR SUNDAY REST The entire fleet of fishermen's boats at Juan Fernandez, with three of the rowboats used to bring supplies ashore and take lobsters out to the schooners.
