Captain Frederick Marryat was an actual 19th-century BritishNaval hero who lived a saga worthy of the novels of C.S. Forester orPatrick O'Brian. Captain Marryat survived fifty naval battles and served onthe crack frigate Imprieuse under Lord Cochrane-the real-life model forHoratio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey.

Marryat's writing followed notable examples of the sea-story genre byDaniel Defoe and Sir Walter Scott. In turn, his writing influenced HermanMelville and Joseph Conrad. What made Marryat different than some of theaforementioned writers was that he lived the adventures about which hewrote.

Leon Howard's biography of Herman Melville credits Captain Marryat'swriting as having influenced the author of Moby Dick to first go to sea.
