The Makena was in trouble. Adrift and at the mercy of storms, the ship sent out a distress call. They were too far from Halifax to make it safely to port, and the situation was dire.

Two ships, from the Royal Canadian Navy, were on their way home when they got an urgent and unexpected call. This is the story of what happened.
