The Battle in Houseboat Bay in SA27 involves violence but (like the battle in SW28) it is good-natured violence. There is cannon-fire, a pillow-fight, and ends in Captain Flint walking the plank, which he had made ready. They hoist the Jolly Roger in place of the Siamese elephant flag. After a banquet in the houseboat they dance the hornpipe to Captain Flint’s accordion and then sing: Spanish Ladies, The Whale, Amsterdam, Blow the Man Down, Away to Rio and many another.
