Straight out of Waterworld


Without a backup plan, the two used a satellite phone to get in touch with Roz Savage, who was crossing the Pacific solo in a rowboat and happened to be in the same area at the time.

Savage, who was heading from San Francisco to Hawaii, was in dire need of water after both her potable water makers broke. When the three met up, Savage got onboard the raft, Paschal speared a mahimahi and the three dined together. Before parting, the men gave Savage a water maker and she gave them some of her extra food.

“We exchanged the necessities of life,” Eriksen said. “And that kept us going.”

That sounds like it came straight out of Waterworld. Save the sat phone. But remember when Costner trades dirt or women for trinkets or whatever the hell happened? Yeah, that.
