Colors of the Sea. (May 26)

Paints were a very precious quantity in the good old days, and British merchants could make a young fortune supplying paints to the colonies. 

One company sent a clipper ship full of red paint across the ocean. It had the very bad luck to collide with another ship full of blue paint. 

As a result of this disaster, both crews were... marooned.
