Aquatint by George Cruickshank depicting an Ostend packet caught in a squall, or wind storm. On either side pasengers are thrown from their bunks and lie around the cabin looking seasick. A chamber pot falls from one of the berths on the left side emptying itself over the pasengers. In the centre a dinner table has been upturned sending crockery and pasengers everywhere.
