Summary-

Ulysses and his men try to go through a strait to get to Thrinacia. They get attacked by the two monsters.6 men get eaten alive and a lot of boat damage was caused. They finally pass Scylla and Charybdis as they move forward towards Thrinacia. This is where Ulysses heart turns into a piece of bonze battle armor.

As they go directly in the middle of the strait. No sudden movements as they are almost halfway through. A slight reaction as Ulysses notices the oars are way too wide. He looks to his left and the water was being sucked in and spit out into a whirlpool. Distracted by the amazing foam was like a magical dream. As the tentacles swung like a thousand ropes. If you haven't noticed Scylla is a six headed beast with large tentacles. She wants human flesh for food. On the other hand, Charybdis is an ocean dwelling monster who thirsts the water of the sea.

Now Ulysses has to act quick as the giant water waves hit the ship when 8 massive tentacles grabbing at his only men. Things seem pretty much over. He roared at his crew to keep the ship on course as he hacked at the tentacles trying to save his men. With no time to weep, they were almost out as he glanced back at Scylla stuffing his men into her six bloody mouths. Now it’s onto Thrinacia, a new adventure.

Lesson learned - Dont do anything that would risk somthing important. Think before you act. Ulysses should have thought his plan out more and wasn't prepared for the monsters to attack the wide open oars. Now he payed for his mistake with 6 men eaten alive by Scylla and a large amount of boat damage.
