Endurance is becoming easier to read and to keep my attention. The seamen are still handing in there with Shackleton and is believing everything he is saying. They are on the verge of losing their built and it seems like they are alittle discourage. They see the Endurance as a safely blanket, something that reminds them of civiliation. McNeish built two boat but they would not sail and this discouraged the men somewhat because it was a set back. Some of the things Shackelton does or as the call him, Boss, is preparing them for future encounters that they may not see right now. For example, Shackleton has the men eating blubber from seals which they will later on have to eat more of because the supply of food will decrease as time passes. By the end of this chaper, the Endurance is stinking more and more and I am waiting to see what happens next.
