Underwater Cable Drag - The scene is during the storm where the character "Murph" doubled by Mike Brady was hooked in the hand and sent over board. The cable snatched him and drug him down to a depth of about 30'. He had to hold his breath for just under two minutes while struggling and waiting for "Sully" Pete Turner and Sean Graham (doubling Mark Wahlberg's character) to swim the length of the tank in full clothing under water to his rescue.

Rollover and Rescue of the "Mistral" - The stunts took place in the water tank at stage 16 at Warner Bros on a gimble-operated sailboat "The Mistral." Three-ton water tanks, water cannons and wind machines were continuously dumped and blown on us as the stunts were performed, making the waves and the weather as real as the film shows. As high seas and waves were blowing the sailboat it capsizes and the crew needs to be rescued. Tim Rigby jumped 20' from a mock helicopter into the water and swam to the boat to attempt a rescue which was unsuccessful. Dana and Jennifer are tethered to the side of the sailboat and are nearly drowned as it reels from side to side. George assists them back on board for another attempt at rescue from the crew in the helicopter. Dana, Jennifer and George then jumped from the boat into the high seas and kept afloat while Tim Rigby swam through the waves and helped them into the rescue basket.

Storm Tossed from Tower to Deck into Water - Sean (doubling Mark Wahlberg) was on top of the look out tower trying to fix a broken antenna and save the Andrea Gail from certain death. He was hit by 50 ft. man-made waves and by several powerful water cannon. At the same time, the Andrea Gail was on a gimble system that violently rocked the boat in all directions up to 45 degrees and 100 mph fans were bulleting rain. All elements were used in combination to knock Sean from his perch and send him reeling to the steel whales deck some 16 ft. below. No pads. After surviving the high fall, Sean was immediately hit by another dump tank that sent him off the ship, down to the next level and into the steel railing.
