Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread
Just watched about half of the movie and then skimmed through the remainder as I sat on watch in the bridge at work...
Someone said it, it's not the errors that bothered me to no end, it was the way he was just so casual about the entire thing. You don't tack the boat to the side with a gapping hole in your boat. He didn't have much concern about the water just sitting in his boat, heck he went to sleep with it there. Look I'm not saying the guy should have panicked or freaked out the whole movie, but he was just way to calm and collected. And you would think that since he was calm and collected he would have made better decisions.. And prioritized better. It was almost like he wasn't actually in the middle of the Indian Ocean.. . Oh wait.... Haha!
I thought the movie was terrible. And I take back what I said about the errors, they were terrible and too many. Let me shave before this storm hits instead of reefing or putting my storm jib on..... Sea Ancho ready, maybe?
Also, from a professional mariner, you don't ever leave your floating vessel for a liferaft unless it is in fact sinking!
And what really got me at the end is when he is in the rafters for days with all this time on his hands, yet when he sees a ship, he has to read the directions on the flare. Twice. If I'm stuck in a raft alone, you better believe I'm going to know everything about what's in that emergency bag nd how to use it.
And that is what I think of the movie. Also, I'll never get that time back.
