At the beginning of the novella, the narrator describes Marlow as follows:

He was a sea man, but he was a wanderer, too, while most seamen lead, if one may express it, a sedentary life. Their minds are of the stay-at-home order, and their home is always with them- the ship; and so is their country -- the sea (section 1).
