The Brickmaker is a useless member of the ship team despite on his strong name. The only thing he did was waiting for the brick that wasn’t coming. Marlow is working hard on the board, and the Brickmaker’s doing nothing that irritates him. The seaman doesn’t like this lazy worker who hasn’t done anything for a year.
