Chapter 7 Summary

Ghost catches the trade winds and sails along wing-and-wing at nine to eleven knots for several days. Hump is pleased with the progress, disoriented by the growing distance from San Francisco and stunned by the natural beauty of the ocean. He realizes that he has never experienced such raw and powerful natural splendor. Larsen is also caught up in the beautiful vista one evening, and another brief philosophical exchange between Larsen and Hump is conducted on deck. Larsen becomes briefly euphoric about the beautiful experience of living but quickly notes that living is ephemeral and death ultimately claims all.

Chapter 7 Analysis

Humorously, the educated and refined Hump briefly misquotes Robert Browning, and moments later the presumably roughly educated Larsen correctly quotes Rudyard Kipling at length. Ghost is footing west at about two hundred and fifty nautical miles each day.
