Bring her around, hard to starboard!

Aye Captain!

A thud, the water splashes on the deck.

That be a close one Mate, I thought we was goners for sure!

Another thud, the ship rocks and bobs as if she were to roll over.

There Captain, on the cliffs above the reef!

You got a good eye mate!

Another thud tosses the ship, and then two more follow.

Come about lads, our cannon won’t reach up there!

Aye Captain, com’in around!

Splat, a direct hit!

 

Richard Ray, you get out of that tub before you turn into a prune.

OK Mom?

The good ship “Tub-Toy” sinks steadily to the bottom as taps are heard from a finger bugle.
