February 18, 2016, Thursday
Based on a true story Pendleton rescue happened in 1952, a  T2 tankers SS Fort Mercer and SS Pendleton broke in half due to the heavy storm, fortunately this young crewman risks his life, pass through the series of shoals to save them. A lifeboat that only build to take 12 people, but it manages to take 36 instead. A ship that broke into two and still sailable in the sea was a miracle and this was the another one.
 *************************************************************************
來自真人真事的故事,海上的海岸訪韓隊,扮演著一個很重要的角色,在兇猛的大海中行駛已不是一件易事,更何況這是一個救援活動。船身被撞成一半,一位引擎室的船長是靠著和其他船員的合作精神,成功將一半的船身靠卡在礁石上,等待救援。所幸遇上盡者的船員,奮不顧身的前往相救,在大雨風暴的情況下出海,碰上岸邊的沙洲的急速風險,他們最終成功救回32位船員。

For me that's not just one hero in movie, the senior engineer of the ship, who have the experienced among the most on the ship, with his experience, he managed organized the other sailor to sail the half boat on a submerged reef and wait for rescue. Without that the crewman won't be so easy to find a broken ship in the sea. No matter what position you are, just do your best and do your job, you will overcome anything in the end.

整部電影的英雄似乎灌輸在防衛隊的隊員上,但是我覺得油船上的引擎長也是英雄之一,破例的船不容易行駛,更何況斷成一半的船。沒有深厚的經驗和對那油船的智深認識,想要在無導航的指示下任何事都是無法做到的。每個職業每個崗位,只要做好自己的本份,凡事都可以解決!

Bernard "Bernie" Webber, a crewman at the Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, has fallen in love with a local girl, Miriam Pentinen. The two plan to marry on April 16, but in accordance with Coast Guard regulations, Bernie must seek permission from the station's commander, Daniel Cluff. On the day he is due to ask permission, Bernie is dispatched to pilot his lifeboat, CG 36500, to rescue the oil tanker, SS Pendleton, which has broken in half off the Chatham coast after getting caught in a nor'easter. Bernie selects Andrew Fitzgerald, Ervin Maske, and Richard P. Livesey as his crew.

Meanwhile, the Pendelton's engineer, the senior officer on the stern of the ship, which contains most of the crew, organizes the surviving seamen to steer the sinking stern of the tanker onto a submerged reef, where it can lodge until rescuers arrive.

When Miriam hears that Bernie is leading the rescue effort, she, like a number of other townspeople, thinks this is a suicide mission. Few people in Chatham trust Cluff, since he isn't from the area and doesn't know its treacherous weather. Miriam even goes as far as to drive to the station and urge Cluff to call Bernie back. Cluff refuses, and brusquely orders Miriam out.

Between the Chatham harbor and the open sea lies a bar, a series of shoals that are very dangerous even in good weather. Bernie must time bursts of his engine to ride each approaching wave before it breaks as he pilots the 36500 across the bar. He manages to make it over the bar, though in the process he loses his compass.

Bernie steers the 36500 to the stricken tanker. Even though his boat is only designed to take on 12 people, Bernie manages to rescue 32 crewmen. The stern of the Pendleton begins sinking more rapidly during the rescue and goes down shortly after the last crewman comes aboard Bernie's boat. Relying on his knowledge of the coast and prevailing winds in place of his compass, Bernie steers the 36500 toward home--a task made more difficult as Chatham loses power. However, Miriam and the other townspeople drive their cars to the pier and turn on their headlights to guide Bernie in.

A closing segment briefly documents the aftermath of the rescue using photographs from the actual events. Two months later, Bernie and Miriam are married; they stay together for 58 years until Bernie's death in 2009. Webber and his crew receive the Gold Lifesaving Medal.

改編自真實災難事件,一場規模空前的風暴在美國東北角掀起駭人狂風和滔天巨浪,兩艘大型油輪就在狂風暴雨中撞裂成兩半。一組海岸防衛隊冒著生命危險,在零下低溫和70英尺的巨浪威脅下,靠著單薄的救生艇,要與時間和天氣競賽,搶救岌岌可危的油輪組員性命

  4. i watched this movie also and i enjoyed it.. this is the kind of "disaster movie" that i would likely go to watch in cinemas.. indeed it was a miracle for the people to survive through the rough ocean, if it's fictional then we know it's just a movie, but this was indeed a real incident that happened in the past, unbelievable..
