Pirate Sealer

Arthur Catherall

. 'Piracy, to such an unscrupulous and dangerous adventurer as Captain Thorson, was an excellent way to earn easy money. With this plan in mind, Thorson's ship was designed so that it could be transformed into a Russian gunboat, enabling Thorson to confiscate the skins collected by sealers in Russian waters. Matters did not work out smoothly, however, because The Bear lacked and engineer, and urgent necessity drove Thorson to take his mate Jimmy Staton's advice and shanghai Stan Farrager, one-time friend of Jimmy's and Tubby Fenner, when these two engineers came ashore at Tromso. How Thorson learned to regret shipping two such determined troublemakers aboard The Bear is told in this exciting yarn by Arthur Catherall, who writes so convincingly of the sea and ships, and the men who sail in them.'
