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. The captain assumed a sword fish had stuck the bottom of the ship and it wasn 't huge issue. After a few days at sea, with the crew taking up multiple shifts of pumping the water out of the hull, the captain concluded to get the ship repaired at one of the nearby islands. After this, Ismael brings up why the captain decided to do this.
As the town tied him up in the boat and went to blindfold him, he saw what looked like water draining out of a bathtub like a whirlpool. It then hit him; the water was being drained out of a sinkhole. He told the townspeople as quick as he could and showed their attention to the sinkhole. The people immediately let him go and apologised. They filled the hole and stop the draining; Johnnit was the town hero and got to stay on the long side of Mt.

The first run was a long one, but the line was longer, and the fish stopped before the reel was bare. This was my opportunity, and I had the boatman swing his craft across the course, and, reeling in the slack line I turned his head toward the deeper water. Forty-five minutes of a pretty a fight as one could wish to see left my new acquaintance alongside the boat, and before he recovered his surprise the gaff was in his gills and the boatman lifted him on

On a dark December night in 1776, as he led a barefoot brigade of ragged revolutionaries across the icy Delaware River, George Washington said, “Shift your fat behind, Harry. But slowly or you’ll swamp the darn boat.” He was talking to General Henry Knox (they called him “Ox” for short).

It has been 17 years since I have seen that clear, blue, ocean water with my own bright, blue eyes. As the ship departs from the dock and the wind tousls through my sleek, dark brown hair, it reminds me that in just a few more days I will return to my childhood happiness. After unpacking my luggage I decide to head down to the main deck to check out the activities that are rumored to be going on by fellow passengers. I instantly see the hustle and bustle of all the travelers
