Here is the copy of an article I just found on Dauntless.
This article is called: “Yacht Aboard” from the Sarasota Herald written on February 2, 1954.
“Captain Fleming said he would hug the coast as far as Hatteras because we had aboard us just forward of the bridge and the quarters of the captain and passengers a 40-ton yacht belonging to Laurance Rockefeller, who ships this glorified soap-dish down every winter, accompanied by his skipper, Thomas Taxter and his wife Dorothea, a very pretty young woman, and Charles Karr, the engineer. The yacht had been towed down from Tarrytown in her own cradle and hoisted aboard by a 50 ton crane, at a cost of thousands. Shore side carpenters were bracing her with timbers and when they finally had her secure, we were two hours late getting into the steam.
We made San Juan Dec. 23 and I gave ungrudging credit to the longshoremen, who are. I understand, Joe Ryan’s subjects, as they tore away the lumber from Rockefeller’s toy and, and with extreme delicacy, hoisted her over the side and set her gently in the water where a tug waited to haul her somewhere. Rockefeller uses her to snatch fish by the face around Trinidad, but she barely has enough cruising radius to cross a bath tub. They would be unloading all night with winches going and men calling so we went ashore to the Caribe Hilton, a bizarre and very expensive resort hotel with beautiful swimming pools and a roulette layout.”
