There’s a metamorphosis of plan!

As Ramage made for the bulwark Jackson grabbed his arm. “Your pistols, sir! ” Ramage took them and paused to jam the barrels into his belt, picturing for a second what could occur if one among them fired by accident. Then he was once scrambling up directly to the bulwark and jumping around the hole of black water among the 2 ships—a hole on the backside of which a guy was once already splashing and screaming in Spanish.
