Did you mean HI #2 (permalink) Tue Feb 07, 2006 12:47 pm   Did you mean HI
 

Hello dear learner,
Did you mean hi :)
You have found the correct answer! In this sentence you have "unloyal sailors" and "desert" is exactly the verb which fits because it is connected with unloyalty. Otherwise, it could also be "abandon" if the word "unloyal" weren't there.
