The good-luck spell
The privateers
Word from the Pilgrim
Boys don't blubber
A voice in the night
Sail by ash breeze!
The almanac
Lock, stock, and bookkeeper
Anchor to windward
What next?
Down to the sea
Nineteen guns
Sail Ho-o-o-o-o!
A simple matter of mathematics
Lunars and moonlight
The Astrea to the rescue
Strange sailing orders
Book sailing
Sealing is safer
Science and Sumatra
Captain Bowditch commanding
Man against the fog
