On the PIER, DRAKE, DRUM, and WEST are watching. WEST is anxious, leaning forward. DRUM is taciturn, and DRAKE is trying to look the same.
1. WEST: One splash only!
2. WEST: And not her—
WEST surges forward, to be caught with a hand on his arm by DRAKE.
3. WEST: —my captain’s still on board!
4. DRAKE: Give it to her, Mister Thane…
DRAKE, grim, looking out at the fire being fought on the water.
5. DRAKE: …there’s ought we can do from here—
DRAKE, WEST, and DRUM, reacting.
