That I was the one to discover them dead, it left a lasting impression.” He reported that their boat had gotten pushed away in the storm, and rather than wait the storm out they decided to try to get it back. They paddled their canoe to the shore where their boat had washed up and their canoe immediately blew up onto shore.

In this chapter, Ishmael is in Lima, Peru and is talking to two of his friends, Don Pero and Don Sebastian. The story he tells takes place before the events of the book and the story goes like this: The Town-Ho was a sperm whaling ship from Nantucket and it had started to take in more water than usual.
