Seaman leaning on a gun on the 'Pallas'
A view on the 'Pallas's' fo'c'sle at sea, looking forward over one of her chase guns, with the starboard clew of her fore-course visible above her bowsprit. It is possible the seaman is a forward lookout, or just relaxing, and there is another sitting out on the spritsail yard to starboard with a harpoon, possibly to spear dolphin. The scene suggests light weather conditions running down into lower latitudes on the way to Africa. The name 'Pallas' is carved or painted on the quoin (breech wedge) of the gun.
