That evening, Frank informed us we would likely face squally weather throughout the night, and to be alert and prepared to run on deck to help whomever was on watch (with only 3 crew members, we each did our night watches alone). It was around 1:30 AM, as I layed off-watch in my bunk, when I awoke to Will hollering Hey hey!! Hey hey!!
Hmmm... bored? Really?
Frank didn't know what to make of it all, and said calmly and frankly, "Well, Will, I'm sure I could find something for you to do...?"
Having lived with a sleep-walker and sleep-talker for the last couple of years, I was starting to understand the scene I was witnessing. Will declined Frank's offer, as he began to come-to, and simply responded, "I'll go back to my bunk now." I looked at Frank, we both shrugged our shoulders, and he went back on deck as I put my head back on my pillow and went to sleep.
