"He was quite the singer in his day."

Um, when did his day end? I didn't know his day was over!

Right as we all know the Fitz succumbed to the gales of November
And a quick perusal of a wiki :-
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Yarmouth_Castle


The Evangeline before being renamedYarmouth Castle
That wiki reveals that the other ship disaster in the Bard's repertoire was also lost in November
And it could not have been the third shipwreck subject The Marie Christine because(if my memory serves me correctly) Gord himself recounted that was a ship that passed in the night in the form of a French lady of that very name who he admitted, in an article I read somewhere. meeting in Edinburgh,Scotland
