Spectre quotes C. G. Davis
One passage mentions the fo'c'sle heads and lockers (one for paint, one for the bosun's stash). On Westward there are two steel scuttles butted up against the forward bulwarks port and starboard for those purposes. Our bosun was using one of the heads one day and a couple of us looped a line over it so the door couldn't be opened outward from the inside. Us watchstanders stepped aft and and claimed we couldn't hear his shouting to be let out of the steamy, stinking little hot box. No one ever let on who did it, but he declared those heads off limits for the rest of the passage. Just as well. Disgusting places.
“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
