When I try to run my script I get this prompt back:

mount: /dev/da0 on /external: incorrect super block

This fails because you are trying to mount the raw(?) drive and mount is unable to detect what file system it is (by looking at the partition's super block).

Am I doing something wrong here or do I need to I need to use one of the
other from /dev:

You want to use /dev/da0s1d - the main partition on slice 1 on the drive.

Sorry, I dont remember the explanation as to why you must use da0s1d instead of da0s1c, but it goes something along the lines of c partition being a shorthand notation for the entire slice, whereas letter d marks the first partition on the slice.

Maybe someone here can clarify this?

Hope this helps.
