The sailboat rescue seen in Perfect Storm was based on Satori. Here is Satoris link, there is a little video in there that the CG took during the rescue. Satori was found on Assateaque a few days later, no damage to the boat other than from the beaching, she survived the storm just fine, the crew was the weak link.
