He doesn't talk to himself, to let us in on his thought process. Bad weather had sunk several boats in the fleet and damaged many others including Napoleon Solo. When the boat capsized, she struck her head so hard that she couldn't read a book for the next six years. Similar to the Adrift movie's ending, as she pulled into the Big Island's Hilo Harbor, she cried tears of joy.

Worlds collide when the group ventures out to sea aboard a small boat that Stef sneaks out from her dad's dock. However, Solo is damaged in gale-force winds and must stop for repairs. Tami and Richard knew a storm was coming, but they didn't know it would be that bad.
