Inhaltsangabe: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ... ROLLING DOWN TO COLON THE Hippocampvts has arrived at Colon, Panama, and as I look over the record of her voyage across the Caribbean Sea I own to a feeling of bitter disapointment. In justice to the reader who has patiently followed the little yawl on her journey from New York I desired to include in this story an account of a battle with the elements that would dwarf into insignificance every previous happening of the sea. I wanted to be able to say, "As I recovered consciousness I saw the mainmast go by the board; the mizzen ballooned off into space; the cabin hatch reeled after it, ripped off by the sheer force of the hurricane, and in another minute we were at the mercy of the waves." I thought that it would enhance the dramatic quality of my yarn if it were written on a raft with sharks encircling me and were consigned to the deep in the last of our muscatel bottles. Unfortunately, nothing of this sort occurred. For 550 miles we sailed steamship courses, and for four days of the five that were occupied in running from Kingston, Jamaica, to the Atlantic terminus of the Panama Canal we enjoyed weather conditions of the Grade A Select variety. Nothing could have been more disappointing from the writer's point of view; and nothing more delightful from the navigator's. Throughout the entire voyage of the Hippocampus, which now draws to a close, I have been the troubled possessor of a sort of dual personality. One part of me is the navigator who offers copious libations to the gods of weather and is best pleased when conditions are ideal; the other the writer who leaves port dolorously, hoping that everything unpleasant and exciting will happen at once. Unfortunately for both sides of my personality, we have experienced mediocre weather...
