A good book lets the reader use their imagination. Once it is on screen you tend to think of the appearance of the actor rather than the character. Very good casting avoids this to a degree, but ever since seeing the 1974 film I see Sophie Neville instead of my vision of Titty.
Note how Ransome gives very few physical descriptions allowing us to have our own ideas of a character.
A very merry festive season to you all. Here's to a great 2017 full of people sailing, fishing, camping, exploring, playing, pretending, and maybe finding treasure...
Hear, hear! Perhaps the greatest treasure of all is simply finding the pleasure that messing about in boats is all about.
