Cheyenne Warlock's "The Witches Hammer Voyages" (flash fiction, free)

I missed the punchline here.

"The Witches Hammer" is a sea-going vessel stopping by at some port for repairs. Harbourmaster cannot quite figure out the ship's log, & the sailor Boston Gantry (probably ship's Captain) is explaining. I completely missed most of their conversation - lot of jargan, place names that don't mean anything to me, ...

Captain will give a gift to Harbourmaster that is supposed to do some magic, but I completely missed the point & ending - apparently something magical.

Fact sheet.
