When it was hauled to the surface the Western Flyer looked like a ghost ship.
Veils of seaweed hung from its rotting timbers, and it was encrusted with barnacles.
The wreck was valued at $0, but a purchaser paid $1 million for it, or more precisely, for its mystique.

De schipper van de Warnow was een lasser en een muzikant. Na de nodige werkzaamheden aan
een oude loodsboot kwam de veronderstelling over een zeewaardig schip te beschikken.
Het noorderlicht werd als reisbestemming gekozen en na een bijna schipbreuk, aan Schotse rotskust
in zwaar weer, ging een deel van de bemanning van boord.

〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰

Ader had set sail from Chatham, Massachusetts, 10 months earlier. The artist conceived of his journey,
which was estimated to take anywhere between two to three months, as part of an artwork titled
‘In Search of the Miraculous.’ Had he succeeded, the Ocean Wave would have been the smallest boat to cross the Atlantic.

〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰

‘Ik ben begonnen met een speld plat op het water te leggen. Als je dat heel voorzichtig doet, blijft hij drijven. Op de lange duur
nam ik steeds zwaardere voorwerpen’. Af en toe hield de man de banden voorzichtig een beetje tegen het wateroppervlak aan,
en op een gegeven moment sprong hij met een onverwachte beweging vanaf de touwladder op de razende brommer,
die met een noodgang wegspoot. Het werd al enigszins licht. De brommer was binnen een kwartier over de horizon verdwenen.

〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰〰

He saw a silent black squall which had eaten up already one-third of the sky. You know how these squalls come up there about
that time of the year. First you see a darkening of the horizon—no more; then a cloud rises opaque like a wall. A straight edge of vapour
lined with sickly whitish gleams flies up from the southwest, swallowing the stars in whole constellations; its shadow flies over the waters,
and confounds sea and sky into one abyss of obscurity. And all is still.
