There have been many fine ships sailing under the flag of the United States, many of which had all the guns needed to splinter yon Shat from guggle to zatch, pintle to dolphin-striker, and beam-end port to starboard. Splinter her. A shambles. Don't forget that a single whale, with only two well aimed running blows, completely sank the fully-equipped whaling ship Essex in five minutes. Imagine what damage twenty such blows, striking at once, would have done to her.

Thus, the fatboat.
