Re: Worst Case Scenario: Hitting A Sunken Container - What To Do!??

Two ships run aground, One on the east coast of OZ and one in NZ, A lot of the containers had floated to shore,

They soon had an armed guard on them to stop the looters, They made off with heaps of good gear before the guards came and stopped it,

It has almost no dialogue (except a lot of cursing) and no real background on the character, so the story is told through the actions and emotions of a lone sailor trying to survive a chain of mishaps triggered by the collision. Could become one of those favorite "sailing" movies (right next to "Dead Calm"?).
I've got to see that movie.
