one of my favourite incidents, is Capt Flint hanging a notice on the houseboat in WH, warning trespassers that they would be hanged. It was only when I came back to the book as an adult I twigged it was a practical joke on Peggy and the Swallows. As a child I thought he was genuinely miffed to find strangers making free with his boat. It's a lovely humorous incident.
