Did You Know?


On the second shooting day on open water, after all day scenes had been filmed, the engine starter of the Slipaway broke. Luckily, the wind was still moving, so the captains raised the sails. Yet half an hour later, even the wind died, and the entire cast and crew were stuck, drifting, four miles off the San Diego coast. Night approached quickly, no other vessels were in sight, many were getting sea sick and only one local tow boat was on duty but kept receiving the wrong coordinates. After four and a half hours, rescue finally arrived and towed the Slipaway back to shore. On the film's website (www.SlipawayMovie.com), you can find a video clip taken during the breakdown.

Fall: Watching my husband wither away like that, I... I decided that was never gonna happen to me. I'm gonna live my life, and chase my dreams, and when I go, I'm gonna go. I need you to understand that.
Adam: [Silence] I understand.
