fighting, the whale is harpooned many times, but escapes after smashing Ahabís boat. On the second day, the whale is harpooned again, but still escapes. On the third day, Ahabís harpoon pierces the whale, but the rope catches him by the neck and Moby Dick drags him to the bottom of the sea. An angry Moby Dick rams and sinks the Pequod. Only Ishmael survives, and the Rachel rescues him.
