7 Plenny days we go slow, an had hard time fo come by Knidus Islan. Da wind neva let us go da way we like, so we ride boat by Crete Islan, leeward side, unda Salmone Head. 8 Had hard time wen we go by da coast side. An we come by one place dey call “Safe Harbor” nea Lasea town.

If we ride boat bumbye garans we goin get one rough time. We goin get wipe out, an we goin lose da boat an all da stuffs too.” 11 But da captain neva like lissen Paul. He do wat da local navigata guy an da boat owna tell um fo do. 12 Da port town no stay good fo da winta time, an almos all da guys tink mo betta fo go. Dey figga dey can go Phoenix an stay ova dea winta time. Phoenix one port town Crete side dat face da southwest an da northwest.

So dey pull up da anchor an ride boat close by da Crete coast. 14 Afta short time one wind dass real strong jalike one hurricane blow on um from da islan. Dat wind get da name “Da Northeast” (Jesus Guys 27:14). 15 Da storm grab da boat, an dey no can handle um in da wind. Az why we give up, an da wind blow us. 16 Wen we pass by one small islan Cauda, on da leeward side, we almos no can bring da lifeboat up. 17 Da guys bring um up on top da big boat, an dey tie ropes good aroun da big boat fo hold um togedda. Dey sked dat dey goin scrape on da sand bar by Syrtis inside Africa. Dey put out da sea anchor an let da boat go wit da wind. 18 Da wind poun us real hard, an da nex day da guys start fo throw da stuffs dey carry on da boat ova inside da ocean. 19 Day numba three, da guys even throw da stuff fo make da boat work inside da ocean. 20 Plenny days da sun an da stars neva come out, an da storm stay real strong. Az wen us lose fight an tink we no goin get outa dis.
21 Da guys neva eat plenny days, an den Paul stan up in front dem an tell, “Eh, you guys, you neva like lissen me wen I tell we betta not ride boat from Crete. If you guys wen lissen, we neva get all dis trouble an lose all da stuffs, but you neva lissen. 22 Now I tell you guys, no give up, cuz you all goin come outa dis.

27 Afta fourteen nites da wind still blow us across da Adriatic Sea. Bout midnite da saila guys figga dey come nea land. 28 Dey drop one line fo find out dat da watta stay one hundred an twenny feet deep. Afta short time dey find out dat da watta stay ninety feet deep. 29 Dey come sked dat da wind goin poun us agains da rocks. So dey put down four anchors from da back an pray dat da day time goin come fas. 30 Da saila guys try fo escape from da boat, an put da lifeboat down inside da ocean. Dey ack jalike dey goin put down da anchors from da front a da big boat. 31 Paul tell da captain an da army guys, “If dese guys no stay by da boat, you no goin come outa dis.” 32 So da army guys cut da ropes fo da lifeboat an let da lifeboat go.
33 Jus befo da sun come up, Paul beg da guys fo eat. He tell, “Fourteen days you guys wait, an you neva eat notting. 34 Now I beg you guys fo eat someting. You need um fo stay alive. You guys no goin lose even one hair from yoa head.” 35 Wen he tell dat, he take some bread an tell God “Mahalo plenny!” in front all dem.

Dey figga az mo betta fo make da boat crash ova dea. 40 Dey cut da ropes fo da anchors an leave um inside da ocean. Same time dey hemo da ropes from da ruddas. Den dey put up all da sails in front to da wind an steer um to da beach. 41 But da boat hit one side current. Da front come stuck in da rocks an no can move.
