20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

“Were you thrown into the sea by the shock to the frigate?”
“Yes, Professor; but more fortunate than you, I was able to find a footing almost directly upon a floating island.”
“An island?”
“Or, more correctly speaking, on our gigantic narwhal.”
“Explain yourself, Ned!”
“Only I soon found out why my harpoon had not entered its skin and was blunted.”
“Why, Ned, why?”
“Because, Professor, that beast is made of sheet iron.”

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea – Jules Verne

Prepare for adventure under the high seas matey!  Reports of a giant sea monster attacking ships around the world abound and the US Navy is going to save the world.  With the help of French marine biologist Monsieur Aronnax,  his servant Conseil and Canadian whaler and harpooner Ned Land, the Navy frigate Abraham Lincoln sets sail.   Popular theory among the crew is that the creature is a giant narwhal….rare whales with long tusks protruding from their heads… the unicorns of the sea.   After weeks of searching, the ship finally encounters the beast in the dark of night, but it’s simply no match for it.  An epic sea chase ensues … the beast rushes the frigate….Aronnax is thrown overboard and the faithful Conseil goes in after him.  Ned’s harpoon hits the spot to no avail and he finds himself overboard also.

And so begins the adventure………
