The adventures of John Storm and the Elizabeth Swann. John Storm is an ocean adventurer and conservationist. The Elizabeth Swann is a fast solar powered boat. During a race around the world, news of the sinking of a pirate whaling ship reaches John Storm and his mate Dan Hawk. They decide to abandon the race and try and save the whale. This is a modern Moby Dick, the twist being that there is a happy ending for everyone, even the whalers. Herman Melville would approve. This is a modern Moby Dick, the twist being that there is a happy ending for everyone featuring this $Billion Dollar Whale, even the whalers. Herman Melville would approve.

 

 

WHALE NURSE <<<

 

In this chapter Kulo Luna has recovered a lot of her strength and is in a playful mood. They have released the giant whale from her tether, where she no longer needs a tow.

 

The food supplements appear to have worked miracles, now that her stomach is clear to function normally, she is getting stronger by the day.

 

The gash on her back is healing quickly from the high protein foods and vitamins she is being fed.

 

Suki Hall enjoys watching the giant whale swim alongside the Elizabeth Swan and all seems well. The pirate whaling boat Jonah is nowhere in sight.

 

But, just as all seems well, a storm begins to brew. John Storm recognises the signs and begins to batten down the hatches, which in this case means taking control of the Swann from 'Captain Nemo,' the boat's autonomous navigation system, or they'd come to a grinding halt.

 

 

THE BRIEF

 

For this scene, aim for 2 pages (sides) and 5 illustrations, suggested as:

 

1. Suki watching Kulo in the wake of the Swann, with the giant whale acting playfully, spraying from her blowhole and slapping her fins.

2. Outside at the aft helm, John is looking worried, he disengages Captain Nemo, Suki is in the background looking on.

3. View from the aft cockpit to the horizon, Suki sees the storm clouds darken the sky and high winds from the wave tips being blown in the direction of the wind.

4. Picture of the Elizabeth Swann's solar wings being folded, and wind turbine being stowed (lowered and folded from vertical to horizontal).

5. Picture of the screen showing the camera view to the rear of the Swann, seas getting rougher and Kulo almost engulfed in waves. [Caption: "Where is Kulo"]

 

These headings are only to guide you - some of the person to person pictures can be smaller (6 to a page size or insets) - to help you to plan your layout if you fancy illustrating this Scene.

 

THE CORAL SEA >>>

 

 

 

 

The Elizabeth Swann seen heading towards the viewer. The turbine height depends on wind speeds. For artistic reasons, it might be better to show the turbine lower that full height. Especially in high winds. In the chapters 'Storm Clouds' and 'The Coral Sea' the turbine would be folded (furled) to a horizontal position - where when running the turbine blades are vertical. (Vertical Axis Wind Turbine = VAWT)
