Charles always was a bit of an odd character. He was a hard worker though, and because of that the captain overlooked most of his eccentricities.
His tendency to speak with the stressed Rs of a Hollywood pirate got on the nerves of some of his shipmates though. What really did their heads in though was his “practices.”
And exactly what did he practice? Well things like climbing the mast. Yes, the 3 metre mast with no rigging. Worst of all, however, was his “mutiny drill,” where he would spend hours “walking the plank.”
I guess it takes all sorts.
