    I'll check my files, but I think I may have a copy of the Survivors Report from the loss of this ship and probably mentions the ships Master losing his hand. Will update when I can.

    I do have a copy of the Survivors Report from the Phidias. The file size is to big to upload to this site, so if you send me a PM with your email address, I will forward you a copy.
