Ocean water splashing up the rusty side of a ship sets one’s imagination into overdrive. I imagined this to be the backdrop when Mephistopheles speaks to to Dr. Faustus: "Why this is hell, nor am I out of it. Think'st thou that I, who saw the face of God,  And tasted the eternal joys of heaven, Am not tormented with ten thousand hells In being deprived of everlasting bliss?"
