It was probably another short circuit in a place he’d never checked before. He’d fixed the bridge gyro compass twelve times in the last month. This time would have made a baker’s dozen. But then something exploded within the ship, and he found his ears ringing and his six-foot-two, two-hundred-thirty­ pound frame flying through the air, crashing through the door to the CO’s stateroom. Ferociously, the deck bounced up and down, and then up again, as if some great leviathan had grabbed hold of the Chevalier’s bow and was using her to swat flies on the ocean’s surface.

Like the good sailor he was, he began to make his way carefully along the tilted deck to carry out his orders. He couldn’t help it if the ship’s office was on the way. TREMAIN’S skin felt warm and then cool—sticky and then slippery.

Rolling over onto his side, he felt a sensation that the ship was rapidly slowing. One glance forward through the drifting clouds of smoke told him why. The Chevalier’s star­ board breakwater shield was missing, allowing Tremain an uninhibited view up forward. And his eyes could scarcely be­ lieve what they saw. The Chevalier’s bow had been severed, completely blown off.
