A steel angle of the gangway had pierced the ship side and water started entering the engine room.

Answer: No, I don’t think it was easy for Captain Kumar to accept the risky suggestion given by Vishal. He might be thinking that the ship may even turn over or may sink in the Pacific Ocean. But he still accepted it because water had entered the engine room and he was in ‘do or die’ situation as there was no other way out to save Trishna.

Question 9: ‘You’re quite a seaman really…’ says the Chief Officer about Vishal. Would you call Vishal a seaman? Give reason.

Answer: Yes, I would call Vishal a seaman because as a real seaman, he didn’t get frightened and gathered all his courage. He went to his father and suggested an idea to save Trishna.
