you listed this question twice........... you really only need to post once. Someone will get to it as soon as they log on!

They said Mr. Arrow had gone overboard without any other explanation. Falling over drunk was a possibility, suicide was also mention, but in the end...... the following quote sums it up;

"He was not only useless as an officer and a bad influence amongst the men, but it was plain that at this rate he must soon kill himself outright, so nobody was much surprised, nor very sorry, when one dark night, with a head sea, he disappeared entirely and was seen no more.

"Overboard!" said the captain. "Well, gentlemen, that saves the trouble of putting him in irons."

Me? I think the Captain had him thrown overboard, but that's just my opinion!
