What is the narrator’s reaction to the adventure that he himself terms “a catastrophe” in terms of his feelings about becoming a sailor?

Pym's experience only served to heighten and confirm his feelings about becoming a sailor.
IN no affairs of mere prejudice, pro or con, do we deduce inferences with entire certainty, even from the most simple data. It might be supposed that a catastrophe such as I have just related would have effectually cooled my incipient passion for the sea. On the contrary, I never experienced a more ardent longing for the wild adventures incident to the life of a navigator than within a week after our miraculous deliverance.
