The account of this rescue does not begin to describe what these guys in that 36-ft lifeboat from Chatham endured and it is totally amazing that they got all but one person from the Pendleton into the lifeboat under those conditions.

My mind cannot wrap around conditions that this rescue took place in.
Luck, fate, having real seaman ship and not loosing control or focus is what I see coming together in this rescue.
