Even the title of the story, “The Open Boat,” suggests that they are left in the open, vulnerable to nature. Crane’s introduction of the canton flannel gulls mocks the men and their struggle at sea. “The birds sat comfortably in groups, and they were envied by some in the dinghy, for the wrath of the sea was no more to them than it was to a covey of prairie chickens a thousand miles inland” (Crane 716).
