An unusually intense storm pattern catches some commercial fishermen unaware and puts them in mortal danger.
Michael Ironside, who plays Bob Brown, the Andrea Gail's owner, was apparently mistaken for the character he plays, by one of the town locals.
Bugs, how you making out?
Mike "Bugsy" Moran: I'm not. I don't know. Maybe I smell like fish.
Bobby Shatford: Maybe you need a new deodorant.
Mike "Bugsy" Moran: Maybe I need a new face.
During the later storm sequences in the pilot house of the Andrea Gail, after the windows are broken out, the water droplets falling from overhead fall vertically with the pull of gravity. That means the camera was tilted, and the actors were leaning to heighten the appearance of rough seas.
