This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   They are down below in the forward section. The SS Pendlton crew is topside on the lifeboat while returning to shore.
   The SS Pendleton Crew keeps the ship moving astern to keep it afloat. The crew of the SS Pendleton sights a shoal and steers towards it.
   The ship drifts onto a sand bar. SS Pendleton misses the shoal they tried to ground on. The engines are reversed to let the ocean push them into the shoal. The ship's crew successfully grounds on the shoal.
   When the radar at Chatham Station is fixed they see two objects on the screen (SS Pendleton) but wonder what they could be since the SS Mercer would not be in that location. A pilot searching for survivors sees the bow of the SS Pendleton and radios an alert that is picked up by other ships and shore stations. A resident (Mr. Nickerson) on shore sees a ship adrift and hears the whistle. He tells Bernie. Bernie and his crew return to the station where they are told about the SS Pendleton.
   The sea was still rough, but with the boat following the sea, the ride in was less eventful. The sea was rather gentle while returning over the bar.
