You must know that a shallop is a large boat, much larger than the one belonging to our ship, which is called a longboat.
A hundred miles they sailed in the longboat and, at last, the second island was sighted.
Seventeen of the crew got into the longboat, and, after seven days, fifteen of them reached port.
The Dutch crew was ordered into the longboat, and bidden go to the devil.
Like most merchant ships, we had but two boats: the longboat and the jolly-boat.
I like to think that I was in no hurry to get into the longboat.
Below them lay a longboat, apparently intended for piloting the ships into the harbour.
Water and bread and blankets had been hastily passed to the longboat.
The longboat was ready by this time, her barrels full of water and her lockers full of biscuit.
As soon as the longboat was clear of the brig the mutineers released the mate.
