… model it after The Table in Ruuster’s Castle in northern Nautilus, Hucka D. But there’s only 5 seats there.”

Hucka D.:

We need 12 or 13.

bb:

Yeah. Hold on.

bb:

Wonderful.

Hucka D.:

But not solving our problem. The Table.

bb (agreeing):

The Table. (pause) What of the One Who Zaps, Hucka D.? What’s his role in all this?

Hucka D.:

He provides the audio to the video. And also video for the audio in a lesser way. He is both male and female in this way manner.

bb:

What of Seven Stones? What of its history?

Hucka D.:

Peter G. obviously made this. From the future. Gave permission and such. Like the Rabbit Head of Ratzenberger. They were all working together at this point. Even you.

bb:

You act like the present, our present, is in the past.

Hucka D.:

It is.

bb:

So… Peter G. knew that Pietmond would be given up at this point in My Second Lyfe, and created 7 Stones to latch onto. A laugh jacket. Life jacket I mean. Second Lyfe Jacket (?)

Hucka D.:

Straight (smiles).

bb:

A change of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.

“It’s obvious that this is a form of The Arab, which kind of sort of backwards is Barracuda.”

Hucka D.:

The Arab destroyed Pietmond and made Seven Stones in its place. The Arab is both the ship and the gull which saves the ship by happenstance.

[edit] Design and history

When laid down in the United States in 1959, it had a capacity of 60,000 tons but the ship was enlarged in Japan to 120,000 tons capacity. At the time of the accident it was registered in Liberia[1] and owned by Barracuda Tanker Corporation, a subsidiary of Union Oil Company of California but chartered to British Petroleum. It was 974.4 feet (297.0 m) long, 125.4 feet (38.2 m) beam and 68.7 feet (20.9 m) draught.

[edit] Accident and oil spill
Main article: Torrey Canyon oil spill

The ship left the Kuwait National Petroleum Company refinery at Mina al-Ahmadi on its final voyage on 19 February 1967 with full cargo of crude oil, reaching the Canary Islands by 14 March. From there the planned route was to Milford Haven.

On 18 March 1967, owing to a navigational error, the Torrey Canyon struck Pollard’s Rock on Seven Stones reef between the Cornish mainland and the Scilly Isles. An inquiry in Liberia, where the ship was registered, found Shipmaster Pastrengo Rugiati was to blame, because he took a shortcut to save time in getting to Milford Haven.
