Apparently Poseidon is angry with the Phaeacians for loading Odysseus up with treasure and providing him safe passage home. Poseidon complains to the boss (Zeus). The gods agree that Poseidon has rule over the sea and that he can punish the Phaeacians. Poseidon turns the ship to stone but the Phaeacians are able to appease him before he closes their port forever.
