Part 8: The Storm

The men assemble in the galley as the Sea Ghost begins swaying roughly on the stormy sea.  Water splashes against the windows as the sounds of the Minnow scraping against the side of the Sea Ghost can be heard.  

The Captain states, "this is definately a rough one and I hope that Benny makes it back inside".  The Minnow is tied to the ship, but the Skipper and Diver Dan can not help to wonder if it will make it through the storm. :'-(

It would have had a better chance if we had cut it loose, Captain-hindsight! >:-(

If we had cut it loose, there would be no chance of us getting it back at all. |-/

At least my face is recognizable as a face. I hear when you were born, you came out backwards and nobody noticed. >:-(

Now, now, gentelmen, name calling will not solve this mystery.  While the ship tosses about, what say we do some more exploring?

I'm sorry. I guess I got a little carried away. :-(

How about a truce, Captain?

Yes, but I'm curious how you got your eyes on my birth records! I am more suspicious of you all the time.

Columbo, let's explore this blood in Geno's bunk...

As the Captain looks at Diver Dan and begins singing:

I was a fool to ever leave your side
ABOARD THE SEA GHOST is such a lonely ride
That breakup we had
Has made me lonesome and sad
I realize I love you
'Cause I want you back
Hey, hey

I spent the evening with the BROKEN radio
Regret the moment that I let you go
Our quarrel was such
A way of learning so much
I know now that I love you
'Cause I need your touch
Hey, hey

(Chorus:)
Reunited, and it feels so good
Reunited, 'cause we understood
There's one perfect fit
And, STILLMAN, this one is it
We both are so excited
'Cause we're reunited
Hey, hey.....

Pete laughing at the Captain's most recent song :-D  states, "Oh yes, the blood.  I DON'T THINK THIS WILL PROVIDE A CLUE".

Any room you'd like, but I don't think that even with my trained eye, the blood will reveal anything.

Actually I am not conviced we will make it though the storm with that tied to our side. It's going to move up and down too much and grind hulls together. What is the hull made of anyway? In storms like this it is often safer to let go than have two ships tied together.

I would lloovvee if you stopped talking about letting loose my boat. I imagine the bumpers I put on there should prevent any damage.

I wouldn't worry too much; it isn't my call. If any dents appear in our hull I might have a change of attitude but I'll be sure to give you time to get in first.  :-D  As for the bumpers, we'll see. My bets are on the storm.

The men make their way to the cabin of Frank Mason, 1st Mate.  He objects to the searching of his cabin, but the Captain insists for the sake of the investigation.

Once inside his cabin, the crew notices that it looks like the quarters of an old pirate ship.  Several pirate flags are draped along the walls along with fishing nets with shells, bones, and teath of various large fish and marine life.  A bookshelf stands in the corner with several large hard-bound books including:

- Moby Dick - novel
- Jaws - novel
- Orca's Revenge - novel
- Mutiny on the Bounty - novel
- The Old Man from the Sea - novel
- Pirates of the Carribean - picture book with lots of images of Johnny Depp
- Discipline through Fear - How To book
- Tales from the Deep - illustrated book of legendary Sea Monsters
- 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea - novel

A smaller shelf on the wall contains a coin collection with various gold dubloons behind glass.

A modest bed with sheets and blanket neatly tucked in stands on the other side of the room next to a small end table with a small lamp in the shape of a pirate skull.

Also inside is a small writing desk with chair, and dresser containing normal clothing items.

And lastly, at the foot of the bed is a locked pirates chest.

An angry Frank Mason stands growling at you as you search his things.

Brr.... cold...Wet...windy! Brrr!

ugh, Don't feel so good...

True happiness: looking inside the box to see a perfectly flat instruction manual.

Oh, Hi Bennie. We'll deal with you in a second, lay down please.

First things first, let look through that Old Man from the Sea book. I've heard of the Old Man and the Sea, but I believe that book is a fake and probably hiding something in false pages.

This creaky old treasure chest can't defy physics, we can bash that right open. Scotty, have at it with the boots please. *wub* I love this part!

I'll smash this skull lamp open to see if there's anything inside it. Columbo maybe you can check out that dubloon collection and see if anything is missing.

Someone else can sort through those fish bones and see if anything is interesting.

Mr. Mason, you can continue to stand there scowling and grumbling and swearing under your breath...Thanks :-)

Okay, go right ahead. :-$ You're so cute when you get kicky. But don't kick all of his teeth out. I don't want to waste our whole first aid kit on him. :-|

Captain, do you think Frank is the one who dropped the gold coin on the deck?

Also, perhaps you could ask him to open that treasure chest... there might be some clues in there...

OK Capt'n. I'll stick to his testicles. Nothing life threatening there!  :-P Err... begging your pardon Capt'n but how long have we known Mr Mason anyway. I'm a bit hazy myself at the moment.
