Presuming the ocean didn't return to a state of flat calm immediately, that is :-)

Not to mention, Steve never would have done anything as stupid as to clip his tether onto an upper lifeline :-)

I've read the book. Hollywood will rip off and rewrite aspects for dramatic effect. Anyways it would be awesome if they HAD made a movie based on callahans book and called it adrift while strictly keeping it accurate. Obviously would require a younger more spritely chap than redford. that's a movie I would want to see.
