They were fasinated by the waves. hey had a really small boat. The waves were huge. The captain was injured.
The waves were getting bigger. The captain was trying to express the situation with humor. He promised to get everyone to shore. Everyone was starting to get angry. The captain is injured trying to direct everyone it the right direction.
They try the overcoat onthe end of an oar adn give the two boys a chance to rest. The oiler steered. At the top of each wave the men could see land. The wind picks up turning them away from shore and it would take longer to get to shore.
THey were finding it weird how no one could see them on the boat through the light house. Then the captain started second guessing everything. there was a person on the shore. and they were getitng help for them
They tried to sleep but the cold water splashes on them waking them up. They would try to turn and curl up and help them sleep.
