"Swieicki said no one was injured, and the two men were wearing life vests. He said the actor, who was grateful and friendly, seemed like he was a fairly experienced kayaker."

I never knew there was such a following for Master and Commander here. I remember why I love this place.

I never say this but... I was actually hoping for a sequel to that movie.

Props to subby for the "Master & Commander" reference.

God that movie so deserves a sequel. But you'd be amazed how small the ship is. I visited her in San Diego, where she is docked. That boat is tiny, especially the captain's quarters. Peter Weir did a great job of making it look spacious.

Spacious? In the movie they can't stand fully upright below decks and the first shot is hammocks bundled together like.... oh, shiat, I don't know, something bundled together. Twigs. Cigarettes in a pack.

You should see the boat. It's virtually a dinghy.

BTW, Russ looks ancient for 48.

Was also hoping for a sequel. Or maybe an HBO series... that would rock.

Those books have become my "filler" books--what I read when I cant find something new to read. I think I'm on my 3rd rereading now.

Remember HMS Rose was a 20 gun sloop -- she's a bit small to really represent HMS Surprise 28. Just the best thing available and afloat.

Lightweight -- I've actually lost count of the reads at this point but I've done at least 7 runs of just the audiobooks commuting over the last decade

/if I knew anything else that was remotely as good at that series I wouldn't keep re-reading -- fortunately its long enough to forget lots by the time you get back around

'Jack,' he said, as they walked along the rim of the crater to a point where they could hail the ship, 'did you reflect upon Ganymede at all?'

'Yes,' said Jack. 'I was up with him all last night, and should be this night were it not for the Sultan's visit tomorrow. Such an endearing little pale golden body as he peeps out - he is easily my favourite. But I shall still have him almost all night, once the Sultan is done with.'

'Shall you, though?' said Stephen, looking at his friend's pleased, well-fed face, rather more florid than usual from the Sultan's wine; and after a pause, 'Brother, can we be talking of the same thing?'

'I should hope so,' said Jack, smiling. 'Jupiter is in opposition, you know. Nobody could have missed his splendour.'

'No, indeed: a very glorious sight. And Ganymede is connected with him, I collect?'

'Of course he is - the prettiest of the satellites. What a fellow you are, Stephen.'

'How well named. But I meant another Ganymede, the Sultan's cup-bearer. Did you notice him?'

Master & Commander is my absolute favorite movie of all time, and the soundtrack is amazing. I also love the Musical Evenings with the Captain albums, which are meant to accompany the books. I really wish they'd make a sequel to this movie.
