The men bury the young seaman, Job. As they climb to the highest point of the island, they are relieved to discover a source of fresh water. The bo'sun orders the men to move the camp to more defensible high ground, while he continues his work on the boat. The men work diligently, and aside from a fight with a giant crab, the afternoon passes uneventfully. The narrator feels gloomy as he goes to sleep, but wakes to find that there is a light visible aboard the derelict vessel, trapped in the weed only half a mile from the island!
