You mean the ship that the King gave to that crazy Italian who claimed the world is round; what’s his name; ah, yes Columbus. Yeah, him; he’s back and he has discovered a new world filled with wonders. The king is sending more ships to the new world and he is looking for some good men to sail. So what! Come on, where’s your sense of adventure; let’s go, there’s nothing here for us. The recruiting ship is due in Basque Bay port tomorrow. Let’s do it, for god, king & country.
