Edmund Zacher "Altogether Now! Pu-lease!"-Pitcairners Drag a Surfboat Out of Reach of "Dat Ole Davil, Sea" The islanders let the word "please" express many different feelings. They never use profanity (page 41). Theseboats, made bythe islanders themselves, are modeled after the old New Bedford whaleboats and specially designed to ride through heavy surf. The sea was comparatively calm when this picture was made.
