The  film ALL IS LOST with Robert Redford is causing a lot of talk at the Cannes Film Festival. Looks interesting but, those of us who have spent enough time on the water already know that "stuff happens" on the water  usually at the worst possible time. Here is a trailer from the film.

Capt. Dan:

Yeah, I've seen that happen and felt the same way too. But, luckily was never at the top of the mast when it did. :)

Sure did make pulling on the block and tackle easy pulling up his weight! Looks like a 5 purchase block probably 40' mast. that over 200 feet of halyard.

Yeah I want one of those! I notice I did not see any line on deck wonder where it went? Probably to the guys below deck who were actually pulling him up.:)
