And it's good to remember that RL's clvil engineer father was Scotland's master of lighthouses, and he traveled on inspection tours of the coastal lights with his dad during the summers. He loved traveling and the sea in spite of being sickly. The Wikipedia entry on him quotes a wonderful little poem he wrote about his father's kindly acceptance of RL's decision to forego the family profession and pursue writing.

I've been going through all my period seafaring films, and the Disney version of Treasure Island is next on my list. I remember this version as being pretty good and was thinking of picking up a copy.
