Filming of the shipwreck sequence was particular difficult. The sea where it was filmed was notorious for its cross winds, tides and currents. Boat captain Bob Moss and his vessel the "Tern" had to negotiate these hazardous waters.

i've found casually in an obscure local tv "Stormy boy" and in the same moment i went in my youthness. This is a very delicate and intriguing movie. And i've rewiewed the boys, the wear, and a tipical manner of realization movies for children of the '70. i love the photography of this movie and his simplicity. Goodbye mr. Percival 8/10 my rating
