"There she blows!-there she blows! A hump like a snow-hill! It is Mo-no, no, sorry, it's a squid, never mind. Pissant mile-wide squid. Sorry about that."

"There she blows!-there she blows! A hump like a snow-hill! It is Mo-oop, no, it's a humpback. Just a white humpback. My bad. Just furlongs of bad from Ol' Ahab. Sorry."

"There she blows!-there she blows! A hump like a snow-hill! It is Moby Dick! Moby! Moby the irritating bald DJ! Shet mah mouth! Lower the boats!"

As for Melville's whaling route, he sailed on a whaler called the Acushnet. The most up-to-date research on this must be the first volume of Hershel Parker's biography Herman Melville (1819-1851), published in 1996.
Moby,

Terrific sleuthing. Let us know what you find.

The Todd Mountain Theater Project of Roxbury, New York is currently presenting a new play by Mr. Len Jenkin, "Kraken." The play explores the friendship between Herman Melville and Nathaniel Hawthorne, with Architeuthis and Kraken serving as recurring motifs.

The production runs from August 7 'til August 16.
