Excerpt

Son las siete de la mañana y nos encontramos sobre la cubierta del Sorsogon. Un prolongado silbido pone en movimiento cadenas, cuerdas y motones.

El complemento de la humana actividad, lo representa el acto de levar un barco. Todo se mueve, todo cruge, todo rechina. El ancla desgarra con sus dientes el lecho de algas en que ha dormido, el carbón chisporrotea en las parrillas dando aliento á los pulmones de acero de la caldera, los engranajes se ajustan, las dobles poleas hacen alarde de su potencia, las burdas, cabos y calabrotes, prueban su elasticidad, las cadenas hieren la cubierta, y en medio de toda aquella vida y de aquel movimiento en que nada está quieto, el barco se columpia libre de toda traba, combinando las palas de la hélice en el fondo de las aguas espirales remolinos que llevan á la superficie entrelazadas ondulaciones en las que se tejen las filigranas de espuma que deja en pos de sí la bullente estela.
