Chapter 16 Summary

After an hour or so at the Neptune, Dick has had a third shot of whiskey with beer chasers. When Parker comes in, he tells Dick that they will have to go offshore tomorrow and dump the crabs before they spoil. Dick is outraged and wants to go right now. When Parker says that Dick's boat will wait as he only has enough money for one coat of paint, Dick is silent.

Parker tells Dick they need a change of luck, not an angry wrong decision. He asks Dick to put his small skiff on board tomorrow, and they will go dump the crabs.
