Volunteers queued up to go after him upon the discovery, notably those from this port, but the Captain wouldn’t allow it. At least not until he can decide what to do next – be on his way, or stay and figure out what to do with the containers slated for this port.
Elijah has decided opinions as to what needs to be done, but he won’t broach the subject until the proper time.
I agree as to the main detail – we need to go ashore, but I believe it should be now not later.
I acquiesced to Elijah.
