March 5, 1940 [San Bernardino Sun]: “Cutter Saves Four from Wrecked Yacht. San Pedro, March 4.—The coast guard cutter Hermes radioed its base today that it had rescued a woman and three men from the yacht Leilani, wrecked on Cedros Island, 400 miles south of here. Those rescued were Mr. and Mrs. John J. Woods, returning to their home in Miami, Fla., and their crew, Cliff Fuller and Pat Piersol. The 42-foot Leilani left here Feb. 25 and sank in 12 feet of water when it struck a rock. The Hermes commander said he expected to refloat the Leilani, repair a hole in her side and tow her to either San Pedro or San Diego.”
