Old man Huffs n Puffs – mooring breaks

1 Comment Uncategorized

My old man hasn’t been having much luck with his mooring, the first one was destroyed by an over zealous French man with penchant for chain, the second one was a little too light and resulted in the boat (a small Sunfast day sailor) drifting across the harbour and coming to a rest on the beach. So he borrowed the mooring next to his which was vacated by a 45′ only a few days earlier, on the first strong wind a chain link appears to have broken sending his boat careering to the other side of the harbour just before the rocks.

Luckily he doesn’t have a keel so there was no damage, if it had happened to any other boat or mine it would have ended up in tears.

    1. Discuss the problems astaeioscd with Santiago’s cramped hand. Include information on the reason for the cramp, the extent of the discomfort and why being alone in this situation is so humiliating.* Santiagos cramped hand makes it even harder for him, in his situation where he’s alone theres no one to help him but himself and now his cramped hand added more problem.2. What does Santiago discover when the marlin surfaces? What advantages does Santiago have over the fish? What advantages does the fish have over Santiago?* Santiago is injured and the marlin is big so it will be hard for Santiago to catch the marlin. But Santiago is smart and he is experienced so theres a lot of chance that he will get the marlin.3. Who is El Campeon? How had he gotten this name? How might the flashback about the event inspire Santiago?El Campeon was Santiago back then , he got the name from arm wrestling, it can inspire Santiago by remembering that he was a champion at some things and to never give up.4. Thus far Santiago seems more superstitious than religious. Why does he now turn to religion? Is this typical of mankind? Explain.Because he prayed that he wanted to get the fish like most people do they pray when they want something to get it
