Sully and Scoot are sailing near the coast of Baja, California offshore Lines 11-32, " Melissa " Scoot Atkins went below into the Old Sea Dog's tiny galley, moving down the three steps of the companionway, closing the two solid entry doors... Sullivan Atkins, Scoot's older brother was steering the boat."
The wave is about to hit the boat and scoot is in the galley " Below deck Scoot was listening to Big Sandy and His Fly-Rite Boys doing " Swingin' West.. [ When Sully ] was drawn to a group of seagulls diving on small fish about a hundred yards off the port bow, and did not see the giant wave creep up behind him." Lines 37- 71
The rouge wave hit the boat and scoot is trapped inside and knocked out because of the impact of her hitting the boat " The Sea Dog became vertical, Scoot rose up to the surface of the walk stern... Scoot was hurled upward, legs and arms flying, her head striking the after galley bulkhead and then companionway steps and the interior deck, which was now the ceiling. She instantly blacked out." Lines 78-86
Thank You Sir
Scoot finally busts out the window of the boat cold and desperate for sully screaming his name " On her sixth dive Scoot braced her feet against the ceiling ribs, pushed with all of her strength, and this time the window opened. Almost out of breath she pushed herself out of the Sea Dog swam to the surface, caught her breath and finally called out, "Sully!.." Lines 367-373
Sully and Scoot are cold so throughout the night they huddle to keep warm. " Shivering, holding each other for warmth all night, they rocked all night, knowing the boat was sinking more and more." Lines 375-376
Sully and scoot are rescued by the red rooster fishing boat captain Mark Stevens. " Just after dawn, the Red Rooster... a fishing boat out of San Diego bound south... came within a hundred yards of the upside down boat and stopped to pick up it's two chattering survivors." Lines 378- 382
