    Summary

    If, as ye take this broad recounting, aught has looked odd in the culture of whalemen— indeed, should you be anything less than a salt-seasoned veteran of that most noble fishery, and particularly to that fellow among ye whose feet have never left the hard-packed soil of his native land, that veritable tree of devout landsmen from whom roots may well spring into the earth or all life exist in a bulb beneath its surface— to you most especially, it may be necessary to preface the next recounting with an explication of the whaleman’s notion of the holiday.
     

    During the search for the leaking barrel of whale oil, a detour becomes necessary.

    A light-hearted vignette inserted into the story of Moby Dick, fulfilling that fundamental human desire to give the crew of the Pequod a beach episode to relax.

    Summary

    This is a cogent vice thou hast here, carpenter; let me feel its grip once. So, so; it does pinch some.

    Oh, sir, it will break bones—beware, beware!

    No fear; I like a good grip; I like to feel something in this slippery world that can hold, man.
