the plan of Karkel and his partner Ludkin, an oceanographer, which is
to harvest as many of the protected sperm whales as they can. Karkel
appears and Primus lures him close to the cell and knocks him out and
takes the keys. He and Magda escape in scuba gear and come under
fire. Meanwhile Charlie and Toni have returned pick up Magda and then
following orders leave Primus to plant small bombs on the propellers
