Hello,

Here is section 18.
https://librivox.org/uploads/carolin/bookoftheocean_18_ingersoll_128kbps.mp3
28:54

Sorry to be a little late with the PL, but when I started listening, I realized this would take me much longer than usual.

First, I had to do some heavy noise reduction just to listen to it, and amplified it down. The steady background noise is very harsh. There are a lot of red spikes in the wave form.

Then there are just so many bangs, bumps, voices, and other noises throughout the recording that I really think it cannot all be edited to make it acceptable. There are also quite a few repeats or missed edits.

My notes are below. I've have NOT noted everything that needs correction, but this will give you an idea of what I am hearing. Are we hearing the same thing?

As I said, this probably needs a new recording in a quieter environment with attention to other things that may be producing the clicks and spikes. And of course, better editing to catch the repeats, stumbles and long pauses.

Opening - click
0:22 - click
O:26 repeat “it was”
0:27 loud noise
0:40 ringing sound of some sort
1:19 ringing again * This sound occurs throughout the entire recording
Maybe these are horns or traffic noise; I don’t know, but very distracting.
1:46 knock
1:50 click
9:07 loud noise
9:33-40 much background noise
15:01 Repeat “in”
15:36 Click and noise
16:09 loud noise
18:48 noise and repeat “but mollusks”
19:27-29 noise and voices
20:37 click and noise
21:54 loud noise
22:17 repeat “as”
24:09 repeat “I dropped”
24:36 loud noise
24:26-27 noise
26:29 partial repeat “every”
26:52 snap or bang
28:20 partial repeat of “the” ?
28:51 – 54 noise in the final silence

If you can, that would be fine. No rush.
Take your time in editing, and give a final listen to catch all of the things that need to be taken care of.
