John Sands: Give me one reason. Why should I, Captain?
Gideon Patch: You've trusted me already. When you were dangling on the end of a rope over the side of the Mary Deare, you trusted me!

Captain Patch claims the Mary Deare was steaming from Portugal into the English Channel (headed North) when she encountered the sabotage.
