The Phantom Ship.
Captain Marrryat's sea stories served as models for the Horatio Hornblower and Aubrey/Maturin series. His writings have been admired by the likes of Virginia Woolf and Joseph Conrad. This novel takes the Flying Dutchman story on some twists, focusing on the son rather than the captain, and relics of the cross rather than true love as the spell-breaker.
