When Colonel Holiday Hammond and Major Cooper Ashbury are bringing their prisoners ashore in Laguna Madre, Mexico, three of the lifeboats are facing the shore bow first, but the fourth lifeboat is facing the shore stern first, which would make it both very difficult to paddle generally, and very difficult to beach specifically, since the bow is designed both to slice the water, and to ride up over the sand. It is also the first of the four lifeboats to come ashore, which is not likely, considering the additional resistance that boat is facing. What is more likely is that a backward facing lifeboat, encountering more resistance, would be noticeably behind the three boats facing the shore bow first. See more
