All'inizio non capì come mai il braccio gli facesse tanto male, poi si accorse che il bracciale che aveva infilato prima di addormentarsi era diventato stranamente stretto. Probabilmente, pensò, durante il sonno gli si era gonfiato il braccio sinistro. Col destro tentò di toccarlo, ma si fermò prima di muovere un muscolo e in preda al terrore si morse il labbro.

Ma Eustachio ebbe un'idea brillante: nessuno faceva caso a lui, erano tutti impegnati a discutere della nave come se fosse la sola cosa che importasse. E allora, perché non darsela a gambe? In fin dei conti, sarebbe stata una semplice scampagnata all'interno dell'isola. Si sarebbe fermato in un luogo fresco e ventilato sulla montagna, avrebbe schiacciato un sonnellino e avrebbe raggiunto gli altri a lavoro finito. Sì, una bella gita era quello che ci voleva.

Si doveva abbattere un tronco - un pino sarebbe stato l'ideale - e ricostruire l'albero del vascello; c'erano da riparare le vele. Una pattuglia di uomini andò a caccia nel bosco: qualsiasi tipo di selvaggina sarebbe andato bene. Gli altri ricucirono e lavarono i vestiti e sistemarono i danni che lo scafo aveva subito durante la tempesta. Quando fu possibile osservarlo dalla riva, saltò immediatamente agli occhi che il Veliero dell'alba non era più il veliero maestoso e veloce che aveva lasciato Portostretto: somigliava a una carcassa sconquassata e scolorita e chiunque avrebbe potuto scambiarlo per un relitto.
