Erik Hesselberg (Character)
from Kon-Tiki (2012)
Knut Haugland: [about how to avoid Raroia Reef to arrive mainland] What alternatives do we have?
Herman Watzinger: We could try to surf over.
Knut Haugland: [skeptic] Surf?
Herman Watzinger: [taking paper and pen to drawn it] Yes. Waves come in cycles of 13. Every 13th wave is substantially greater than the ther. When we are close to the reef we throw out an anchor, something heavy that can keep the raft in place.
Erik Hesselberg: And then?
Herman Watzinger: Then we count the waves. And just before the 13th wave we cut the rope, and hopefully, surf over the reef. It could work.
Thor Heyerdahl: [looking Herman] I like it. Let's do it. That's what we'll do.
