Perlmutter nodded.Yes, the feat didn't happen again until fifty years later, in August of 1914, when the U-21 sank the HMS Pathfinder in the North Sea. The Hunley sat on the bottom buried in silt for a hundred and thirty-six years before she was discovered, raised and placed in a conservation laboratory tank to preserve her for public display. When she was inspected at first hand and the silt and remains of her crew removed from inside, she was found to be far more modern in concept than was supposed. She was quite streamlined, and she had a rudimentary snorkel system with bellows to pump air, ballast tanks with pumps, diving planes and flush rivets to reduce water drag. That last thing, by the way, was a concept that nobody thought had been used before Howard Hughes flushed the rivets on an aircraft he designed in the mid-nineteen-thirties. The Hunley even experimented with electromagnetic engines, but that technology was not ready, so eight men sat inside the submarine and turned a crank that spun the propeller for propulsion. After that, submarine science lagged until John Holland and Simon Lake began experimenting with and building submarines that were accepted by several countries, including us and the Germans. Those early efforts would have looked crude beside Captain Nemo's Nautilus.

Probably somewhere in between, Pitt said thoughtfully.Somewhere slightly more than two hundred feet in length with a twenty-five-foot beam. Not exactly an underwater craft to be taken lightly in 1894.

Twenty-eight years earlier.

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

Perlmutter ran out of steam and was about to reach for the port bottle again when a look of revelation swept over his face.I just thought of something, he said, raising his great bulk out of his chair with ease. He disappeared down the hall for several minutes before reappearing with a book in one hand.A copy of the board of inquiry minutes concerning the sinking of the U.S. Navy frigate Kearsarge.

Pitt set his glass on the table but refused another when offered.I can't believe a supernatural vessel decades ahead of its time 'was built by private individuals.

Did they comment on the monster's size?

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.

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.

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

The same, Perlmutter answered Pitt.I'd forgotten the strange circumstances behind her grounding on Roncador Reef off Venezuela in 1894.

Sounds like the good captain was heavily into the rum locker, Pitt said, jokingly.

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.
