Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread
For those who fault the movie for not being realistic, in that no sailor would act that way. Or for the movie portraying sailors in a poor light, thus giving the non sailing public the wrong idea, ah, i think reality has got the movie beat.
On these very pages right now is a thread running about a professional captain running his boat square on into one of the biggest hurricanes in a decade. Past that, on a regular basis these pages fill with back and forth as members deconstruct the latest nit wit move by someone who has gotten his scrotum caught in his zipper. From newbies who step off their boats in mid ocean believing them to be sinking, to professional delivery captains run to ruin by making a single bone headed decision.
There is nothing in this movie that comes close to the reality blooper reel running on these pages.
