I can't say, said Perlmutter slowly.I only know what I find in recorded sea history. Which isn't to say there are not more reports, untapped by researchers, in archives scattered around the world.

It seems a stretch to think that the mysterious monster wasn't designed and constructed by an industrial nation, said Pitt, still skeptical.

That, said Perlmutter sternly,was a real whale. I'm talking about another U.S. Navy ship, the Abraham Lincoln, which reported an encounter with an undersea craft that rammed and shattered her rudder.

Perlmutter contemplated his bottle of port, which was now two-thirds empty.Over that time, many ships disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Most of them were British warships.

The ship that sank the famous Confederate raider Alabama?

When did that occur?

Who's to say? said Perlmutter, with an indifferent shrug.Perhaps Jules Verne heard of such a vessel and created Captain Nemo and his Nautilus around it.

The whaling ship Essex, out of Nantucket, was rammed and sunk by a whale, offered Pitt.

Twenty-eight years earlier.

Yes, according to her commander, Captain Leigh Hunt, he was attacked by a man-made underwater vessel that resembled a whale. The vessel was chased, then sank into the water before surfacing again and ramming the Kearsarge, putting a large hole in her hull. She barely made it to Roncador Reef before she grounded. The crew then made camp on the reef until they were rescued.

It's odd that such a vessel, if it truly existed, could cruise the world for almost thirty years without its being seen more often, or one of its crew deserting ashore and telling the story. And if it sailed around ramming and sinking ships, how come there were not more survivors to report the incidents?

The crew agreed that it was cigar shaped, cylindrical with conical ends. As would be expected, they estimated the size anywhere from one to three hundred feet, with a beam of twenty to forty feet.

Did they comment on the monster's size?

Come to think of it, the Kearsarge was not the only vessel reported sunk by an undersea monster.

The Hunley was built by private individuals who funded the project, lectured Perlmutter.Actually, she was the third boat built by Horace Hunley and his engineers. Each more advanced than the previous.

Strange? asked Pitt.

No, he was dead serious, replied Perlmutter,and what's important is that his entire crew backed him up. Not one of them who witnessed the spectacle varied his story. Their testimony described a large steel monster that was impenetrable to a series of cannon shots the Kearsarge poured into it-they simply bounced off. They also mentioned some sort of pyramid-shaped tower on its back that appeared to have viewing ports. Captain Hunt swore that he saw a face staring back at him through one of the ports, a man with a beard.
