Looking from the mainmast, as THE GENTLEMAN RIFLEMAN settles himself into the ratlines and rigging, readying his rifle.
BELOW him, we can see PAYNE and the OTHERS making their way for the hatch/door to head belowdecks.
On the GUN DECK, as BARCLAY comes off the ladder, his GUN in hand, looking around. BEAUFORT is right behind him, and we may see the legs of SARGE BURLEY.
It’s dark down here. Very little illumination, just a LANTERN glowing dimly where it hangs from a PEG.
Angle amidships, the gun deck. They’ve all come off the LADDER, now, PAYNE the last of them. PAYNE is indicating to the stern. ALL have weapons to hand.
