And what's with "...this is an SOS call?" That doesn't sound right to me (mayday...?) Would love to hear if I got it wrong somehow.

Re: All is Lost

I think that I'll be waiting for it to come out on DVD. "This is an S.O.S call", really?

Re: All is Lost

Well it was only a 3 minutes preview. Well see how well or not the boat is equipped in October. I would be very dissapointed if the movie was absurd to sailors who know port from starboard. I really hope its like a Master and Commander set up so far as accuaracy. I love that, ovie btw, wonderful flick and the novel series is even better. Anyway im still excited to see it so well see

Re: All is Lost

Off shore without an HF, Satelite radio or EPIRB?
That's just asking for issues. IMHO

Re: All is Lost

All the reviews say the movie is really good. I just can't see it being "that" good. What is the story line. A man goes out sailing single handed and hits a container and the boat sinks, he ends up in a life raft waiting to get rescued. Has happened many times over the years. Old story.

In any case if he had been sailing an S&S 34 none of this would have happened...


I'll see the movie at some point, should be entertaining.
