Re: Hooked marlin sinks boat
He must have been holding the throttle lever as he fell. No experienced fishing skipper backs down on a fish at full throttle on purpose. Yes its unsafe, but beyond that, nobody can reel that fast so you end up running over the line and cutting it with the props.
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
