Save Money On Flights

She Has No House And No Hold. There Is Six Feet Of Headroom, And The Deck Is Unbroken Save For Two Companionways And A Hatch For'ard.

The fact that there is no house to break the strength of the deck will make us feel safer in case great seas thunder their tons of water down on board.

A large and roomy cockpit, sunk beneath the deck, with high rail and self- bailing, will make our rough-weather days and nights more comfortable.

There will be no crew. Or, rather, Charmian, Roscoe, and I are the crew. We are going to do the thing with our own hands. With our own hands we're going to circumnavigate the globe. Sail her or sink her, with our own hands we'll do it. Of course there will be a cook and a cabin-boy. Why should we stew over a stove, wash dishes, and set the table? We could stay on land if we wanted to do those things. Besides, we've got to stand watch and work the ship. And also, I've got to work at my trade of writing in order to feed us and to get new sails and tackle and keep the Snark in efficient working order. And then there's the ranch; I've got to keep the vineyard, orchard, and hedges growing.

When we increased the length of the Snark in order to get space for a bath-room, we found that all the space was not required by the bath-room.
