Very unique piece. You've packed a lot of good metaphors in "old sea tar" language. I had to read it three times to grasp the brilliance of this work. I love it.
Very appropriate allegory!

I stumbled over a few of your word choices, but I liked the salty flavor of this little story.
It meets the criteria, and I felt it was well written. Perhaps it could have been a little more accessible as to meaning. Janice85
My only word for this is...beautiful. For some reason as I'm reading it, that's the only thing that comes to mind! This is well written and a good story within a story. I liked the way you showed how the crew trusted the Captain and First mate too. Great writing! ^_^
Congratulations, Javier, on placing 10th in level 2 with this entry. Great job!
