The First Mate of the Jolly Rancher cargo ship announces to the crew that the Captain was found murdered in his bunk that morning. The First Mate knows that none of the loyal crewmen would do such a thing. He narrows his suspects down to the four newest crew members, each claiming to be an expert and experienced sailor. The First Mate questions each of the sailors about the murder.

From the responses, determine which sailor is the most suspicious.

Sailor 1: "Aye, I had jus' finish'd a 12 hour watch astern. Didn't hear a thing."
Sailor 2: "I was busy cleanin' the bathroom 't the front of 'r ship. Don't know nothin'."
Sailor 3: "I was 't the starboard side paintin' the hull, mindin' me own business last night."
Sailor 4: "I 's below the deck las'night securin' some cargo."


Arr, can ye fig'r out who's the landlubber?
