"With fumbling, nervous hands I put on the seaman's clothing" (Charlotte Doyle 105). "I've come, to be one of the crew" (Charlotte Doyle 106).

Captain Jaggery

Captain Jaggery is the captain of the Seahawk. When Charlotte first came to the ship, Jaggery was the one she went to for help. Throughout the book, he becomes very mean to the crew, that reflects on Charlotte. "...jumped forward and and tore the whip from my hand, whirlled about and began beating Zachariah with such furry I had never seen" (Charlotte Doyle 94).

Crew Members

At the beginning of the book, the crew warned Charlotte and told her to get off of the boat.

"...the rest of the crew burst from beneath the forecastle deck with wild, blood-curdling yells" (Charlotte Doyle 83).
