you heard Captain Pembridge? Shouted Swank, struggling to keep his tone serious. Let's get them scuppers! Keel, hold! The men were smiling openly, now, making no effort to hide their contempt for the little round man. They had good reason. Cyrus Pembridge was easily the worst captain in British nautical history. He had never bothered to learn even the basics of seamanship, choosing instead to occupy his time consuming vast quantities of rum. He held command of the Neverland solely because his wife's family owned the shipping line and his wife detested him. She had insisted that he be given a ship, her thinking being that he would be away from home most of the time. Ideally, he would manage to sink his ship and thus be out of her life altogether.
