A.G. is the skipper. Given to getting drunk in his cabin,
(he actually collapsed on the floor during the passage to Cuxhaven),
he cant stand motoring, and goes quiet and morose. He's much happier
sailing, when he starts singing to himself. In real life, A.G. is
a talking Teddy Bear, who has been astonished recently to discover
that he's a collectors item, and even has his own website.
