Just Before Sunset
The captain required the men to bury the loot of silver and gold because the ships had drifted out into the open sea. The crew buried the treasure on an uninhabited part of the island so no one could steal it and sell it. Building the raft out of tree logs, the captain sailed out to find his ship. Just before sunset, they found the ships and sailed back to load the treasure on board.
