Sirocco's bow into the wind and come about to pick him up. All the time he was bobbing up and down, his heart was in his throat fearing at any moment the jaws of a shark would fasten itself to one of his legs. With Errol safely back on board they suddenly realised that the fish was still hooked and after a joint effort where everyone leant a hand, they hauled in a magnificent one hundred and fifty pound Kingfish. She was a beauty and once filleted and salted for preservation would keep them going with fish dinners for a good time to come. The next marine visitors to make their presence known were schools of playful porpoises which began diving and frolicking across Sirocco's bow as she sped steadily along. Errol and the crew were mesmerised by the clever fish's playful antics and everything was going beautifully until Rex decided that he wanted to harpoon one. Trelawney immediately protested that it was bad luck to kill a porpoise. But Rex scoffed at his crew mate's remarks and lined up one of the larger ones and plunged the harpoon into it, killing the defenceless fish instantly.
