My intrepid mariner prepares to check his position with his sextant.

Clear skies and calm seas allow for a precise shot of the sun. Nice pic. I'd rather be there than here, that's for sure.

Thanks Dean! Much appreciated.
It's one I've had standing around for a while desperate to show off his navigational skills in a photo.
His bum reads 1999 Lanard.  Hope this helps.

When I seen his head sculpt I recognised him as a Lanard figure plus I think I’v got that Lanard figure myself.

At least his last geographic position was known with some accuracy... right before the giant octopus (it may have been a squid, reports differ on that point) got him!

Yes, UNFORTUNATELY the octopus attacked before he could mark the position in the ship's log....

FORTUNATELY my Mariner's training had included an intensive course in "Octopus Wrestling",....a skill vital for all lone sailors. And divers too for that matter.
Thus he was fully prepared and not about to let such a little matter as a giant octopus attack interfere with his adventuring.
Besides, he's quite fond of calamari!

Quite the essential prop for any deep sea situation modeler.
Remember "Eight Ropes of Danger"?
Such a sorry small octopus in that set, hardly able to put up a so much as a serious wrestle, but mine really ups the ante!
(It was another present from someone who really knows my tastes...i.e. "weird"!)

I’m really liking the picture of your sailor wrestling a big Octopus. I truly believe Octopus Wrestling is a skill vital for all lone sailors and deep sea divers. Octopus Wrestling MUST BE a popular sport for all sailors and deep sea divers.

Surely the very next sport to be included in the Olympics?
Well if those particular games ever manage to be held again anytime in the foreseeable future that is.....
I'm definitely starting an Octopus Cheer Squad!

A very ghostly looking cephalopod there Jim!
I now have quite a few myself. 
Last count put my collection at fifteen or so. 
Can't resist buying 'em when I see 'em.
(Why is there no octopus emoticon?)

Great shots Barry and Jim!

My non sequitur'ish of the day:

Octopussy was a short story by Ian Fleming and was referring to an actual octopus, not Maude Adams... Crazy tongue

Thanks Brian!
In the movie you refer to, Maude possesses an Australian Blue Ringed Octopus as a pet in an aquarium if memory serves, ...albeit a very much enlarged one.
They are tiny in fact, no bigger than the palm of your hand but their bite is certainly quite deadly and swift, leaving little opportunity for any octopus wrestling!
Game over!
Octopus wins in a Total Knock Out! Or would that be a "SUCKER-PUNCH"???

That is an excellent image! Great sense of action. The translucent water is rendered extremely well!
