About that Raleigh on the Rocks cover
"It's, um… I didn't have much to work with in the way of photos."
"Yeah, I know. You should see the crap we're using inside. Look, this'll do, but I want you to change the subtitle."

"Well, 'Canadian' won't fit. Not unless we go with a smaller font."
"Make is 'Canada' then. 'The Canada Shipwreck of HMS Raleigh'."
"The Canada Shipwreck? That doesn't even make sense. Besides, Newfoundland wasn't even part of Canada back then.
"Look, do you want to be paid or what."
