How about start the engine before you take on too much water?

Why climb the mast? How did the antenna just disconnect itself?

In no wind, how did the drogue pull the container off?

Does anybody wait until the storm is at it's strongest to put out the storm sail?

But seriously, anyone that has that much bad luck, really shouldn't be out on the water

Re: All is Lost

Was Sanctum the silly cave diving movie where they left their bailout bottles, then were buddy breathing off of a Rebreather?

Re: All is Lost

I loooove this thread, it's really funny.

About the topic: It would have been possible to stay with the plot and simply do it in a way, that people who know about sailing would more or less agree with the technical aspects. He could have turned on the bilge pump
So, shame on the producers!

Didn't have an engine, they pulled it out to make room for the cameraman.
He climbed the mast to try to get the radio working and found that the last time he had it up in a slip he'd forgotten to do the cable up. Then he realized he'd brought up the wrong spanner.
A drogue doesn't operate in wind, it operates in the water such as with a currant.
