Character Introduction


The keel at the center of the ship is the "Life Line" of the ship. If the keel is broken, you can't just take it off and put in a new one. Replacing the keel is the same as building a new ship!! Thus, no one can repair your ship. Your ship is... nothing more than a pile of wood waiting to be scrapped. - Paulie explaining to Luffy and Nami about the Going Merry's damage.

Yes... I'm so useless... The money... they took it... Nami... I'm... sorry, everyone! We were finally able... to fix the Going Merry... yet... I lost the money... I'm so useless... - Usopp apologizing for losing the money.
