Worse Things Happen at SeaA ripping yarn a wizard adventure Only Patrick O Brian holds a candle to Jan de Hartog in authentic tales of the sea It s the combination of human relations and the relations with the ship itself that does it for me Men under stress act in interesting ways And all men on a ship not just in time of war are stressed They live or did when Captain was written or less in conditions of deprivation of sleep of palatable food of basic comforts like showers and silence and perhaps most importantly female influence Working ships like ocean going tugs icebreakers and most military vessels were traditionally designed and built with accommodation for the crew as a last consideration Crammed between fuel tanks or below decks euipment into spaces lacking ventilation hygiene and well space it is no exaggeration to say that they were treated worse than animals in a zoo And the conditions only get worse at sea bobbing like a cork shuddering and sliding with every wave pounding over and through ice wet through with no chance of completely drying out continuously cold with nothing but cold food and cold undrinkable coffee The smell of diesel fumes is one that no one really gets accustomed to If it really gets rough everyone is sick even the old salts In wartime convoys people dieAnd yet men perform their duties They get up for watch at 330 in the morning stand in the rain or snow and dark for four hours do their daylight chores and drills chip paint and paint rust go back on afternoon watch then do it again and again For months on end None of it very edifying except at the pen of a master like de Hartog who recognises the stamina the grit necessary to persevere And somehow it is the ship which they simultaneously distrust and love that allows them to transcend the objective misery of their existence The ship is a god like object of faith that mediates their relationships Its operating its maintenance its survival is shared as an existential fact something that needs no discussion no explanation or theory It just isDe Hartog insistently makes the point that the idea of the ship is very different for military and civilian crews especially on Dutch ocean going tugs This difference goes beyond spit and polish versus slovenly make do and mend De Hartog s portrayal of the culture of high seas towing and salvage is clearly based on the old Dutch sleepdienst company L Smit Co Smit became known as the vulture of the seas as well as the romantic Hollands Glorie because it made its money by being the first on scene anywhere in the world to claim salvage rights for vessels in distress Smit s fleet of huge tugs were strategically placed to offer assistance as soon as everyone was off the stricken vessel in order to establish salvage but not a moment beforeLife on Smit tugs wasn t governed by military discipline but by mutual confidence in competence and respect for the ship But the relationships are than that of camaraderies among heavy euipment operators De Hartog plays on the tension between the naval commander of the convoy and the tug captain to great effect Both their motivations and their methods of command are fundamentally incompatible Warships are machines run on fear of the conseuences of disobedience Tugs are organic entities powered by a sort of hive mind which is as delicate as lace The former operates by rote procedure the latter by experiential skills The convoy commander wants to get as many ships as possible to Murmansk The tug captain wants to get a single ship through the war hisNo glorification of war No romanticising of life at sea No sympathy for loneliness and discomfort Just a stirring tale of uiet persistence
