The Arrival of Her Majesty Queen Isabella's Catamaran Wet Dream 2 in Hispañola prior to its Sinking and Subsequent Looting by the Savages of the New World, etching by Guillermo Portola, ca. 1503

The Wet Dream 2 was the fourth ship of Christopher Columbus' fleet on his first voyage to the New World.Episode #159

The Wet Dream 2 was commanded by Esteban de Colberto, an experienced sea captain.

Built in Palos de la Frontera, Spain, she was a 22-foot standard-rigged A-class catamaran with berths accomodating 2 (or on a good night 3, hello!)

Fate of the Wet Dream 2Edit

The Wet Dream 2 was sunk in a vicious storm just off the coast of the Azores. The wide girth of the hull not capable of with-holding form due to the throbbing pressure of the sea and the pulses of beating waves, the ship eventually collapsed into the frothy white crests of the waters. The men and most of the provisions washed ashore, whereupon cannibals ate the crew and drank all the beer.

It is noted in the famous rhyme:

"In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue
but cannibals ate the fourth ship's crew
sushi-style, then drank the brew
he'd stored aboard the Wet Dream 2.
"
