Images of the past grow ipale in the
memory of the old but the aged skip
I per gave me at least one recollection
of colors distlngulshably bright enough
to detain the attention He sat beside
4 me on a Thames hillside far below
bridges The river was a wide and
spreading breast of water hereabouts
streaming in a long blue reach under
the pure summer sky All that passed
t was within easy view to the trembling
silver uf the reflected sails to the
f gleam of a gilt dogvane over the rip
I pllngr folds of a house flag to the fig
ure 6f a seaman jockeying a flying jib
ll boom end to the burning sunspark in
the bright brass binnacle hood
Whilst we sat talking tis years
J Bince a tall hulk came towing into
sight I thought it was the hull of a
frigate My aged companion stared
eagerly through his glasses When
broadside on the hull showed as a
noble old relic the sparkling bravery
of her day still lingered but dimly in
the gilded mouldings and carvings
a ound about her quarter galleries and
stern Her figurehead was a milk
white angel with lifted arm in a pos
c ture of triumphant bugling but the
I trumpet was gone Time had robbed
the old sheer hulk of that power and
t ipoetry of silent music Her hawser
holes had a look of human nostrils
I large with disdain It was clear she
k was being towed down river for some
ignoble purposeto be made a coal
r hulk of perhaps or her destination
irvight have been the echoing yard of
the marine knacker and she clearly
J knew It and felt it for ships are in
telligences though they may not be
launched with immortal souls and it is
It true of them as the Finns do swear
that they converse as they lay side by
side in the dock when the darkness
p falls and the shipkeeper snores with
drink but in language you must be a
Finn to understand
There goes an old frigate said I
Ji Not she cried my venerable com
panion in the raised and broken voice
of time and breathing short with a
sudden agitation of memory Thats
the old Ramillies Dont I know her
Here he seemed to breathe shorter yet
and to stare with more devouring
spectacles Shes 1500 ton I com
i manded her in 1S56 To think it it ha
That she should be passing yonder
k under my very nose
He favored < me with many reflections
i upon the passage of years and the
changes which happen In a mans life
I have no room for them fin these
pages meanwhile I watched the hull
as she towed slowly by and now quite
clearly saw that she was ia merchant
man of the old East Indiaman type
b she might have been a sister ship to
the Blenheim or the Alfred she had
large open ports like gunports and a
row of big cabin windows along the
line of her poop deck Her faint gilt
work glanced as her square handsome
stern floated round the bend of the
shore and disappeared And still the
old man by my side moralized on life
occasionally pulling out a great silver
watch and looking upon it as though
the power of resisting time had sud
denly left him
Somewhat later whilst we still sat
together he told me the storya queer
tragical memory of an emigrant ship
He shall relate it himself Ind Ill help
him as he goes along
It was in September 1856 that I
sailed from the Thames in the Ra
mimes the poor sorrowful old hull
thats just gone past but In those days
What was she Nothing more queenly
ever lifted a truck to the stars Ay
and she was an old ship even then In
that year Im telling you of she was
owned by a small firm in Billeter
street When she came out of dry
dock she looked a brand new vessel
gilded afresh repainted her sheathing
new We hauled out on a Monday
and every mothers son of the people I
was in charge of was aboard 100
tweendeck passengers a number In
the steerage 40 in the cuddy and a
large ships company making in all 210
Fouls We were bound to Adelaide
South Australia We were mostly
Britons I guess by the accents J
caught that every county was repre
sented 4n the tweendecks there was
plenty of Scotland going too both in
the steerage and In the saloon nor
was Ireland amissing nor Wales But
we had some real foreigners likewise I
twigged several bilious skins when I
leaned over the rail and < took a look at
the people in the waist and on the
main deck
I dont know how people are di
vided in these days on board ship In
those times we made three divisions of
them according to their money First
the saloon folks they bedded and
boarded under the poop then the st r
age people they slept and lived in
quarters under the cuddy bulkheaded
off from the bweendecks and they
passed out through a hatch in the cud
dy but were not permitted to use the
poop Then the tweendecks lot all
upder the main hatch far aft as the
She Han a Stealthy Wny of Looking
forecastle bulkhead was their living
room Rough cabins had been knocked
up for the married couples the single
L women slept abaft partitioned off The
men lay in shelves side by side in
fours convict fashion with a batten
between the slespers to stop them from
growing mixed in their dreams
The firstclass passengers were well
enough and the steerage people for the
most part respectable but never had I
been shipmate before with a wilder
hairier grlmer lot than the people who
lodged in the tweendecks They had
a kitchen to themselves it was built
Just before the ships galley there
youd see them crowding about the
doors at mealtimes flourishing their
hookpots yelling to be served wrest
ling and fighting like a drunken mob
up an alley I cant say that I particu
larly noticed the peoplo at the first
going off An Irishman took my sight
toy his ugliness His squint twisted his
pupils Into ills nose and hid scowl was
like a curse flung at everything he
turned his scoundrel face upon
uA couple of foreigner I recollect
looking at on one or two occasions
during this early time They were Ital
ians I fancied a man and tf Woman
steerage passengers and when they
got over their seasickness theyd come
on deck and lodge < themselves in one
place close together just under the
< 1
break of the poop The man was a
I rather goodlooking fellow of the pas
try cook or Italian organgrinder type
I yellow as leather with a pair of dead
black but flaming eyes and a huge
mustache which he had so pulled out
without spiking that it stood athwart
like a capstan bar under his nose His
companion was a pale young woman of
four < or five and twenty not illlooking
though I never met a womans face
that pleased me south of 50 degrees
I supposed them husband and wife
We met with some dirty weather in
the channel which cleared off our decks
of the people There was much heaving
and yahhoing below and small com
fort and nothing to eat if It was not
fetched and scarcely dogs food at
that but in those days the emigrant
whether bound to America or to Aus
tralia was the most illused cheated
starved and betrayed poor devil that
ever stood or tried to stand upon two
legs The convict was handsomely used
In comparison The honest laborers
fragrant with hay seed the red cheek
ed young woman still sweet with the
scent of the udder the respectable
grayhaired but broken father call him
an unfortunate solicitor with a wife
and four small children these people
the like of themin scores were
tumbled Into a floating pit lighted by
a lamp which filled the place with a
stench of burning fat they were fed
on beef the boys could have chiseled
into tops on pork whose smell when
boiled has served in the tropics to keep
a ship clear of sharks battened down
in foul weather till one after another
would swoon with the atmosphere of
their own creation with nothing to re
member but rags and famine at home
and with nothing to look forward to
but four or five stormy months of
squalor and breadworms
We struggled down channel against
a hard head of wind and all went well
till we changed the weather into a high
hot sun and the green ridges of the
bay into a long heave of summer swell
wrinkled by a light breeze out of the
northeast Everything fore and aft had
shaken down into its place by this
time It was a morning in October I
went on deck after breakfast and I
though this was not my first command
by several I was brought to a stand
with a sudden sense of the weight of
my trust when after stepping out of
the companionway I sent a look for
ward and around
The poop was full every cuddy pas
senger was on deck The awning was
spread ladies reclined in easy chairs
in the shadow I went forward as far
as the rail at the break of the poop
and found the decks from the cabin
front under me to the forecastle head 1
Jittered with groups of the steerage j
and tweendeck people That old ship I
ou just saw towing by made a noble
show as she sat upright on the blue
brine clothed to her royalmastheads
The water alongside was white with
the light of the overhanging studding
sails The canvas breathed like the
breasts of a woman as they sank in
and filled with the light breeze and
from under the bows on either hand
lines of light like wires of gold stole
aft meeting In a furrow under the
counter for the full splendor of the
I sun to dazzle in till the beautiful ship
looked as she rolled slowly forwards
as though she towed a sheet of flame
astern of her There was nothing in
sight our three spires rose solitary into
the splendor amid the silence of that
wide space of flashing sea
I stood at the head of the starboard
poop ladder where I could command a
view of the emigrants The mate a
fine seaman named Lever paced the
deck near me os the look out I called
to him and asked some questions
about the peoplematters of difficulty
In connection with the food and the
allowance of water He told me that i
the squinting Irishman was a danger
ous ruffian and had threatened on the
preceding evening whilst arguing with
a man on religion to put his knife into
him I said Tell the bosun to keep te
eye upon the dog If he repeats that
threat aboard this ship Ill have him
in irons away down in the forepeak for
the rest of the voyage I then asked
about other of the people and said
Whos that young girl standing beside
the after scuttlebutt there looking this
way I dont know her name sir Ill en
Shes always alone I observe She
has queer eyes and a strange stealthy
way of looking Whenever Ive seen
her shes been as she Is now in a sort
of halfhiding halfskulking posture
always looking aftas though she
wished to test her sight by reading the
time on the cuddy front Shes a for
Ay by the looks of her answered
the mate
Something aft holds her eye
I leaned over the rail and looking
down on the quarter deck saw seated
right under me on camp stools in their
accustomed place the two Ital
ians whom I had guessed were
man and wife The Italian
was reading aloud to the wo
man A number of people were coming
and going in this part of the deck
When I again glanced forward the
girl of the odd and stealthy stare had
disappeared and where she had been
stood the Irishman of the diabolical
sq uin t
At noon the same day just before
our sextants made it eight bells Mr
Lever said to me
The name of that staring girl you
were talking about this morning is
Carlotta Goldoni
The thing had clean gone out of my
head and I hardly understood him
Then recollecting I smiled and said
Oh yes a sort of opera bill name and
with that careless dismissal of the mat
ter I went on ogling the sun
The weather remained quiet
thiHughout the day The sea at sun
down went spreading away into blue i
mist with the mirage of a ship upside I
down in the southeast that filled the
linof our bulwark with gazers I had
seen plenty of land mirages in my time
amazing upheavals of airy coast within
swimming distance though God knows
how far off the real thing was but
never a ship upside down high up in
the air before She was clothed to her
trucks as we were and rocked like a
delicate exquisite wrought toy or mod
el in the red ether of the sunset I
sent the third mate on to the main
royal yard to see If the substance of
that lovely phantasm was in sight from
that elevation He reported that noth
ing was to be seen The wonder and
beauty of the picture lay in the colors
and motions of it The sky was as a
lookingglass and every heave and roll
of the hidden ship was counterfeited
by the shining shadow hanging star
like then again you saw the hurry
Ing of the colors as the shadows swept
fingerlike with the swinging of the
sails and as the lights and gleams in
the atmosphere changed with the sink
ing of the sun making the painted
image blaze out like burning gold
changing them into a rich rose fad
ing afterward into a dull and rusty
red and so expiring as a whole orb of
moon sickens and Idlsav > ears to a
slow gathering of filmy thickness
At this time it was a sheetcalm
A floating soupplate would not have
filled There was a small terrace of
cloud northwest with I an occasional
glance of lightning there otherwise the
sky was of a topIc oft dark blue the
liquid dusk of it filled with stars un
der one or another of the largest of
which floated a flake of silver feather
ing and lengthening with the light run
of swell A moonless night and spite
of the starshine dark The awning
was furled and the ships tall canvas
whitened the gloom
Just before 8 oclock a little crowd
on the forecastle sang a hymn I had
t1 s
not lo ked for any piety in the
tweendecks Eight bells made a I
knell for the psalmsinging the
starbowlines wanted to turn in
After that a silence gradually stole
over the ship The emigrants lay
about the decks in dusky bundles
some went below The lift of the swell
kept the wind sails wriggling but there
was not so much breeze in the heels
of them as comes from the whisk of
a butterflys wings Most of the cuddy
passengers were on the poop I was
talking to a lady about the mirage
and trying to make her understand
how such are made when the second
officer a gentleman named Marshall
approached and asked leave in a low
mysterious voice to speak 40 me apart
I excused myself to the lady and went
a little distance with the mate I
What is it said L I
A mans been murdered sir
4 In what part of the ship
In the steerage
Who is it
An Italian named Ravogll
Do you mean the fellow tvho used
to sit with the girl under the break
of the poop
Thats the man sir
Wheres the doctor
With the body
I I said no more and went below The
I cabin lamps blazed brightly A few
talking on the
people were reading or I
quarter deck I passed through the
I great square of the steerage hatch and
corridor on
arrived at a passage or
either hand of which were a number
I of berths This was the steerage peo
ples quarters The stewards antry
was down here an understrapper was
washing some glasses he whistled
softly and evidently did not know
what had > happened He told me that
I Ravoglis cabin was the last but one
to starboard and I went straight to it
and walked in scarce doubting till I
had opened the door but thatJ the sec I
ond mate had talked to me in a dream
so quiet it all was down here
But on entering I was arrested as
though paralyzed A bracket lamp was
burning bravely On the deck her head
pillowed lay the body of a woman I
imagined it was she and not the other
who had been murdered till on look
I ing at the upper bunk whereat stood
the ships doctor the steward and the
stewardess I saw the corpse of the
I Italian with his throat most horribly
gashed and cut The doctor was hold
ing a knife
Whats this I asked
As foul a murder as was ever done
ashore or at sea answered the doc
tor No Imagination could figure a ghast
lier corpse It lay in check shirt and
white trousers with a kind j > t white
sash round its waist There was a
shocking look as of sudden terror on
the face The flat of the cabin port
was covered with blood still liquid
and draining down the ships side
Is that woman murdered too ask
ed I looking at the figure on the deck
No answered the doctor shes in
a dead faint
The stewardess said She rushed
into my cabin about ten minutes ago
and told me that she had found that
man lying dead with his throat cut
his head and shoulders in the port as
though he had been talking 410 some
body outside She was trembling and
seemed sick and mad I sent the stew
ard for the doctor The woman came
with me here and when she saw the
body she screamed and fell down dead
as I believed
Shes In a faint said the doctor
see this captain
He handed me the knife I saw at
a glance it was one of the cuddy carv
ing knives A label was attached to the
handle on which was written in a i
hand like print
Non si scampa flalla vendetta dun
Pio ettraggiato
Whats the meaning of It said I
Its Italian answered the doctor
and so far as I understand it signifies
Theres no escape from the vengeance
of an outraged God
This is the work of an Italian
then said I
Theres no making sure of that
sir by this legend only answered the
doctor taking the knife from me and
looking at the writing but one things
certain this man was stabbed and
gashed as you see whilst he held his
head in the open port
Was the body so posed when you
Yes He lay with his shoulders
and head in the port The first thrust
killed him
U Whos his murderer said I look
ing at the stirless figure on the deck
Not sheno exclaimed the doctor
shaking his head It was done from
withoutthats quite certain
Where was she said I when the
man was killed Not m this berth
No captain she never did < it ex
claimed the doctor looking again at
the woman Her hands are clean ob
serve by those splashes how the blood
spouted Then what woman encum
bered with petticoats is going to get
over the side of the ship and crawl to
that porthole holding onby what
Is he dead l said I
As this knife he answered
See to that woman stewardess
said I Doctor keep her alive I must
have her story
I ordered the stewardess to carry
her into a spare berth and then went
on deck ill and with a face wet with
sweat and with a heart on fire with
amazement and horror and wrath
It was a secret Impossible to keep
The second and third mates and the
boatswain several of them grasping
brightly burning lanterns entered the
tween decks and started on a search
amongst the male emigrants married
and single the females were left un
vIsited for the mate and I whilst over
hanging the side under which the blood
stained port was situated had satis
fied ourselves that no female hand had
done the deed The squares of the
ports were wide enough to easily ad
mit of the passage of a body The
port of this tragedy was a little way
abaft the mizzen channels Jt would
have been possible for a man by stand
ing with one foot on the nut of a
chain plate to swing off close enough
to the port to stab the throat of one
who should put his head into the
square of it No woman had done it I
Whilst they ransacked the tween
decks I conversed with the mate anti <
the doctor What number of Italians
did we carry amongst the emigrants I
forgot the doctors answer The num
ber was small How came a tween
deck passenger in possession Qf a cud
dy carving knife Well It might have
been sneaked out of some basket of
cutlery standing in the galley By
what artful maneuvering haa the mur
derer contrived to get over the side
unobserved more than 100 souls being
on deck at the time We decided that
he had entered the cabin adjacent to
the murdered mans and gained the
1 llJllIll

pJ4R L
mizzen chains by passing through the
port Thus we reasoned thickening
the mystery and blackening the trag
edy by our conjectures
They arrived out of the tween
decks No discovery had been made
Some of the men had given trouble
The squinting Irishman had pulled off
his coat and threatened to stab the
first man who laid a finger upon him
He was now in Irons the boatswain
said in obedience to my orders Most
of the people had asked to be searched
and helped the sailors The few Ital
ians were peculiarly zealous and very
Not until next day was the woman
I able to see me She was then late In
the morning > brought to my cabin by
the doctor Istarted and scarce knew
what to do with her face when I
saw her She had been of a light
yellow not uncomely the nose
of the Greek sort the eyes black and
bland and eloquent and now there
stood before me a young woman as
green as a leaf of the ivy She had
turned not a bright but a deep green
In the night and with her black hair
and black eyes and dismal hanging
face fixed by some convulsion of hor
ror into a sort of twisted gape was
one of the unpleasantest objects I had
seen for a long while I bade her sit
and found to my satisfaction that she
spoke English very well
She said her name was Gullla Ra
vogli the dead man had been her
husband They had kept an ice and
chocolate shop in Salmon Lane near
the Commercial road and were going
to Adelaide with their savings at the
invitation of a relative who had done
well in their line of business at that
city She talked as though more
meaning than was in her words lurked
at the back of her tongue yet while
she spoke she looked me full in the
facevery uncomfortably full I was
glad to turn my eyes upon the doctor
after a few moments of her counten
ance I wanted to know if her hus
band had committed any offense She
shrugged and turned up her eyes and
swore by the Virgin no
What is the meaning of those
words about the vengeance of God
asked the doctor
She shook her head with a shud
der and replied I do not understand
what was meant
It is Italian said the doctor
Oh yes it is Italian she an
Do you believe that an Italian has
committed this murder I asked
It was done by somebody in the
ship she answered shuddering again
Do you know any of the Italians
in this vessel
None sir
Do you know anybody at all in the
ship enquired the doctor
All are strange that is before I
came on board
Are you sure of that said I
Theres a big crowd of you and your
eye might easily miss one and that
one shall prove the murderer
There is no face in this ship that
I know said the woman
I made her repeat the story of the
discovery of the murder she confirm
ed the stewardess account and her ac
curacy was further illustrated by the
doctors testimony of the posture of
the corpse when he entered the berth
She said Ravogli had left her on deck
to fetch his pipe as he did not return
she went below and when she saw
him dead in the open port nhe fled to
the stewardess All the while she
looked as though she saw something
behind me Never were honor and
grief more genuine passions than in
that unhappy woman
TJiere was no satisfaction to be got
out of her relation and examination
She begged that her berth might be
changed I at once consented and
ordered the stewardess to clear out a
berth that was used as a sort of store
room and get the stuff stowed afresh
in the murdered mans cabin when it
should have been cleaned This berth
was immediately abreast of the cabin
that had been occupied by Ravolgi
The gloom and horror of this mur
der lay upon the ship for some days
in which time we obtained no clue
nor any shadow of hint as to the as
sassin Many wished to believe it was
the squinting Irishman but I was told
that he was hotly engaged in an ar
gument thundercharged with threats
on Irish politics on the forecastle
headone of the silent amongst his
audience being the boatswain at the
time that Ravogli was killed By re
peated observations of the square port
and adjacent chain plate I convinced
myself that none but a male hand had
driven the steel into the mans throat
For days in the tweendecks nothing
was talked of but the murder whilst
suspicion was so lightningkeen
amongst the male emigrants that we
who lived aft making sure that the
malefactor was either of the steerage
or the tweendecks had little doubt
but that In any hour of some day and
before long he would be flashed upon
and revealed
We drove south of the line and all
meantime had gone quietly Stay
two natural deaths happened making
three burial services In as many weeks
I saw little or nothing of Guilia Ra
vogll as she called herself She stuck
to her cabin and ate there alone in
< I P
lI4 < t C
fact she had got it into her head that
a number in the tweendecks suspect
ed her of the murder and she said she
was afraid to show herself
One quiet night I came on deck at
11 oclock All but one cabin lamp was
I extinguished and all the saloon pas
I sengers were turned in saving as I
guessed by the rumble of voices two
or three who lingered over their ci
gars in the recess under the poop Mr
Marshall the second officer was In
charge of the watch AVe had caught
the first of the southeast trade but
it blew slightly off the bow the yards
were braced sharp up and the squares
of canvas rose pale to the stars with
a piece of red moon hanging over the
topsail yardarm
I was standing at the binnacle
watching the card with an end of che
root betwixt my lips when I was star
tled by a sharp cry from alongside I
sprang to the rail and looked over
and saw the body of a man glimmer
ing white as he floated off into the
wake apparently on his back My first
imagination was a passenger had crept
through a port in his sleep and I roar
ed Man overboard I and bawled to
the steersman to put his helm down
whilst I slipped a 1uoy off a becket
and sent it spinning boomerang fash
ion the direction of the man
We brought the ship o a si and
and lowered a boat The second of
ficer went in charge The moon made
a little light and the wind was so small
there was scarce any feathering of
ripples I could not see the buoy but
I believed I saw the man as some
thing faint and fixed within the rail
holding by one of the empty davits at
which the lowered boat had swung
The mate Mr Lever roused by the
disturbance had come running on deck
Looking down into the post mizzen
chains he exclaimed Is that a woman
lying there sir
I peered and saw a dusky heap as
of clothes The mate without another
word dropped into the chains and in
a moment or two clambered over the
rail again with a womans skirt and
bodice in his hand He held them up
and I said
Whose port is near the chains
where these things were lying
He reflected but could not rem em
ber and I bade him go below and tell
the steward to see if it was all right
with the people in the steerage Whilst
he was absent they hailed us from the
boat to say that they had got the man
and shortly afterward the boat came
alongside and the figure of a mere
stripling a youth dressed in drawers
long stockings and shirt or chemise
was handed up He was alive
I went to the quarterdeck near the
gangway where they had left him to
He till the doctor came and thought
I him a girl but on peering close I
I saw by the light of a lantern held by a
seaman that it was a young man
I very delicately framed about IS or 20
years of ageclearly a foreigner but
I did not recollect ever having seen the
face before aboard the ship Whilst I
bent over the young fellow the mate
rushed out of the cuddy followed by
the stewardess Mr Lever cried
Oh my God captain theres been
another murder done This time its
the woman Guilia Ravogli She lies
in the port dead of a stab in the
I throat just as the man was killed A
cabin carving knife lies in the port
close beside her head with a label
I made fast to the handle of It
I A number of people had assembled
I on deck by this time alarmed by the
backing of the yard and the lowering
of the boat They were gathered about
me as I stood in the gangway and
when Mr Lever had spoken a strange
groan of horror went up into the silence
of the sails I said See to this young
man Hell prove the murderer in both
cases And thus speaking I ran into
the steerage
I found the doctor and the steward
I in the murdered womans cabin By
the bright flame of a freshly lighted
I lamp I saw the figure of a girl in her
bunk as laid there by the doctor bar
barously stabbed In the throat and
stone dead In silence the doctor hand
ed me just such another knife as Ra
vogli had been slain with and upon a
label affixed to the handle ran the
same old grim and bloody legend
Non si scampa dalla vendetta dun
Dio ettraggiato
The mystery of this diabolical busi
ness was cleared up when we discover
ed that the womans dress which the
mate had found in the mizzen channels
belonged to the young fellow that in
short he had been masquerading as a
woman throughout the voyage hay
ing shipped under the name of Clara
Monti He had sailed with his scheme
of murder in his brain and one didnt
need a confession from him to under
stand how he had contrived to assissi
nations now it was understood that
the strange dark staring fiery eyed
girl I had on several occasions taken no
tice of was a nervous sinewy youth
who on removing his womans clothes
in the mizzen channels could go about
his murderous work as lightly attired
as a tightrope dancer
He was far from being drowned
when rescued and when brought to
was locked up in a cabin I visited him
several times but never could get him
to answer or even to lift his eyes He
sat blackfaced sullen mute all day
long never refusing food but dumb
as a figurehead until one day it oc
curred to me to ask a cuddy passenger
a Roman Catholic a serious quiet per
son one who had traveled much in
Italy and who spoke several continental
languages to look in upon the scound
rel and see what he could make of him
How he managed I dont know the
first visit was good for nothing The
prisoner however sent next day for
the gentleman and in the course of a
few visits he confessed the ship then
being within a fortnight of her destin
His name was Dominlco Orladini
The woman he had murdered was his
sister Her name was Monti and she
had deserted her husband and child to
elope with Guiseppe Ravogll Domini
co swore by his God that he would wipe I
out the dishonor his sister had done his
family by slaughtering both fugitives
and ascertaining the name of their ship
and their destination he clothed him
self as a woman and for weeks mas
queraded to perfection in a full Inter
ior He had prepared his murderous
labels ashore ready for the handles
of the knives which he confessed he
had stolen out of the galley He said
he did not intend to commit suicide but
had fallen overboard whilst in the act
