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.

 

 

STORM CLOUDS <<<

 

In this chapter the Elizabeth Swann is caught in the middle of a sudden tropical revolving storm in the Coral Sea.

 

Despite the best efforts of John Storm and Dan Hawk, the Swann takes a severe battering with the turbine mast losing a control rod and one solar wing losing three panels.

 

They almost lose Kulo Luna after becoming separated ...

 

 

 

THE BRIEF

 

For this scene, aim for 2 pages (sides) and 7 illustrations, suggested as:

 

1. The Elizabeth Swann in very stormy seas, turbine and wings folded - no whale in sight.

2. John shining a torch onto the folded mast space-frame, spotting a snapped connecting rod - and one slightly buckled spar. (Note: there are four spars spaced apart like a crane frame) to make the mast - not a single mast as in a traditional sailing ship.)

3. John on the Swann's deck, inspecting three broken solar panels.

4. John inspecting an outrigger hull, being lashed by waves and wind - all okay.

5. Hal (ships computer) confirming John's assessment of the damage.

6. Captain Nemo (ships autonomous navigating computer) advising storm would abide in a four-six hours.

7. John kitting up with belt and tools in readiness for urgent repairs.

 

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 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)
