At 09.00 h Eastern Daylight Saving Time on 8 December 1973 we observed a large
turtle from the bow of the M. V. NELLA DAN. It was floating at the surface of the water
with part of its carapace exposed, and swam slowly southwards out of the ship's path.
According to the ship's log, NELLA DAN was at that time in Bass Strait in about 400 00' s,
147 degrees 02'E, travelling on a course of 309 degrees west of the Furneaux Group, Tasmania.
