Cape Cod Surprise....  Carol Newman Cronin....  144 pages plus info at end....  High School

Surprise is an old three-masted schooner that had been used for hauling cargo between the ports of Woods Hole
(on Cape Cod), Vineyard Haven (on the island of Martha's Vineyard), and New Bedford (on the Massachusetts mainland),
or anywhere else she was asked to go.  She 's just been totally refurbished and is on her maiden voyage when a bad case
of food poisoning overcomes the two teens on board.  Through some inexplicable time warp, the boys find themselves
transported back to 1954 just before Hurricane Carol makes landfall.  Their experiences on board Surprise make for a good
story as well as a lot about boats and sailing.
