I submit that the whaling done by the Uz of Koromandol is within sight
of land, and so unaffected by the Closing, fog or no fog. Drifting out
to sea is still a bad idea. If the whale makes it out to sea, it gets
away. The Uz don't follow it.

I'm thinking of Eden and Twofold Bay on the South Coast of New South
Wales here. Open boats launched from shore. No "Pequod" here.
