Was it "The Egg" that ringbolted on "Captain La Perouse" thinking she was going to Lyttleton/Port Chalmers rather than Panama - the French crew did nothing to disabuse her of this notion. According to the newspaper reports it quite ruined the French Masters day when she wandered into the saloon a week or so out of NZ and made a clean breast of things, so to speak.
