Description:This story is about a clever trick that Tobians used to frighten away dangerous ships in the old days. The story was translated by Thomas Patris in 2004. The recording was made in 2004 outside Echang Church, Ngerekebesang, Koror. The transcription of this story is included here at tb13-04107-tpa-2004-08-10.pdf. The story on the Friends of Tobi Island website is included here at tb13-03696-tpa-2004-08-10.pdf. The website version included Thomas Patris reading the story in Tobian line by line.

In 2014, Felicia Andrew was recorded reading this story in Tobian and that is included here as Felicia Andrew: reading the story of chasing a ship back over the horizon.
