9781330084557: Tahiti: The Garden of the Pacific (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Tahiti: The Garden of the Pacific

We sailed from San Francisco on board a small clipper brigantine of 160 tons, called the Emily, which might have passed for a yacht had it not been for the absence Of a flush deck and the cargo she carried. A half-deck house occupied most of the space aft, leaving merely a vacant corner near the wheel, where I had my sea-chair placed, and there I sat in close proximity to the silent helmsman. A few steps led down to the main cabin, which was divided into a small saloon with dinner-table.
