MORINDA'S ESCAPE Was Stranded on Reef for 18 Days SYDNEY. Tuesdav. When the Morinda was docked at Syd ney: it- was found that about threequar ters of the hold below the waterline- had been affected by tho stranding of the vessel as xieaeie. xo me stout con struction of the Bhip is attributed the fact that no rivets were displaced, and that the hull was not pierced. Many plates have been corrugated, and will nave to be reconditioned. Repairs will occupy -about a month. :':When'the Morinda reached Sydney it was learned that the vessel was refloated only a few hours before bad weather set in. It is considered that had she re mained on the reef she would have been broken ito. pieces. The vessel was fast on the outside of the reef for 18 days, but the tea remained calm. The refloating of die Morinda is re garded as a highly creditable achievement.
