There's a strong tie between ML and PD in the (fictitious in PD; that was made up in the cabin of a wherry according to the books) schooner Wild Cat. Wild Cat didn't exist in PD; to find a ship matching the "fictitious" one for ML would be a fair stretch. That Sea Bear is reported as "borrowed" suggests an element of "Ransome Reality" for GN. Manufacturing an excuse to have CF in a hurry to complete the cruise wouldn't be at all difficult - return to school, need to attend to mining business, important event in any of the various families' calendars spring immediately to mind. No need to "borrow" Sea Bear, with the attendant complications of possibly disrupting Mac's plans or endangering chances of borrowing her again, in a "Peter Duck" story, when much simpler excuses would suffice.
