The word 'drowned' appeared again, after 'troubled' and 'confused', signified a state of desperation (probably of the sailors) that has been previously mentioned on line 47, chapter I. Figuratively, this could be interpreted as the drowning of reason in the flood of emotions, the unstable mood of the sailor when it came to his romantic life. But if this was taken literally, then drowning in this case sure meant death and separation. Either way, it did not forecast a delightful future of anyone.
