Eric, down in the engine room, desperately trying to get something to start, didn’t notice the sudden calm as the ship started to slip under the water’s surface.
The rest of the small crew were all too busy trying to collect whatever they planned to bring with them on the life raft to notice the sudden stillness of the vessel.
Only Mr. Ajo, was up on deck to notice.
“Oh my God, not yet!” He cried.
