The Royal Jester

The Royal Jester1 was on its side. The squall that hit it was easily twice the height of the control room.

Inside the freighter2, crews worked hard to keep the lower levels from flooding3. They used whatever tools4 were available to seal compartments and work bilge pumps. The sound5 to abandon ship played through the halls. Hearts racing6, they started making their way to the life boats.

The captain continued to radio for help as people squeezed7 into the remaining boats. He could see scattered beacon lights8 as his ship lurched and capsized9.
