Because the pilot Gilligan's Island: Marooned
(1992) was unusable due to cast substitutions, a scene in which the castaways are listening to a radio broadcast that describes what has happened to them had to be added. Also, the opening scene for the pilot was used for this episode too - the original castaways from the pilot appear briefly while the Skipper rises from the wrecked MINNOW. See more
Just as the Skipper and Gilligan finish fighting off the sharks, the Skipper's hat falls off his head and into the water right in the path of one of the sharks, and it looks as though the shark was going to make off with it, but in the next shot the hat is back on the Skipper's head. (Perhaps he had a spare hat, like a spare tire, but that doesn't seem likely.) See more

Hey, Gilligan! Gilligan!
Oh, my gosh. Man overboard. I'll save you, Skipper!
