[telling how he lost his eye]
Yeah, it happened when I went down off the coast of Australia.
Your boat sank?
No, no, no, no. Not my boat. My boss's boat. Yeah, we hit this reef. Huge son-of-a-bitch. Ran the whole coast.
Wait. The Great Barrier Reef?
You've heard of it, huh? Smart lady.

Light hearted comedy about a family trying to control their life on a sailboat.
This is wonderful movie, one of my favorite movies of all time! A family inherits a sailboat and decides to flee the urban rat race. They don't realize that they will have to over come many hurdles, including aspects of them selves, Capt. Ron, the boat and the environment.
The daughter plays a teenager that is simultaneously apathetic and nearly out of control. The son is a kid who hasn't taken an interest in life until now. The father assumes that Capt. Ron can't know anything while the family begins to believe that it's the father who doesn't know anything.
This movie was one of the triggers to me moving to a tropical island to live, oh and to buy a boat.
