Re: Robert Redford, Sailor

Most sailing movies end in disaster. I saw the film 2 days ago and found myself second guessing all Redfords decisions, but agreeing with many of them. I'm a day sailor on an inland lake, but still have an opinion. Would a sea anchor really pull that container away if they are drifting in the same direction. I first thought of using a winch. I thought he gave up too easily on fishing. Also, if you are going to have a disaster, how about a bit of joy before all goes wrong. I see myself in his place, but drowning a lot sooner. Hey, but no story there.
