Hurst writes: "...the ship is merely the medium for the hauling men....It is a day with a very big sea runningand the ship is dipping right down at this moment, with all the sensation of a big comber sweeping past. Again, there is water on deck and we find ourselves with a crew which forswears oilskins! It makes no odds. The action is thepicture." (pate 222).
