The audio dramatically recreates the feel of sailing a ship in that era.
I felt that the ending was drawn out a trifle too long - too much to and fro between the hero and villain. It could certainly have been a couple of episodes shorter. It was also very male dominated - there was one female character, who went the very predictable way of most pulp female characters.
