capn’ squiggy.

Capn’ Squiggy, (born Waldo Emerson McGuilicutty) came from a long line of outdoorsmen and sea-faring types. Enlisting in the Merchant Marines at the ripe old age of 14, Squiggy began his first of countless trips around the world as a deck swabbing tenderfoot with a nose for trickery and subterfuge.

 

After rounding the Cape of Good Hope in 1903, he was thrown overboard and washed up on the shores of Pringle Bay, South Africa where he was taken in by a local lighthouse keeper, one Captain Erasmus Q. Fairweather.

“Oh the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see, believe me.”
“The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
