The scene is the edge of the ocean. A ship is falling off the edge onto a pile of shipwrecks below. At the edge is a dinghy with a buoy called 'Finisterre' in it. The dinghy sailor has just taken it out of the water and is replacing it with a buoy called 'Fitzroy' which he exclaims will be 'much safer'.
