Perfect Storm, The - Billy's Torch
Go to the part in the movie where Billy (George Clooney) is on top of the boat with the torch trying to take off the anchor. All of a sudden, the pole he is sitting on falls into the water. Billy is still holding the torch, and when he comes out of the water the torch is still lit. Is it just me, or if he fell into the ocean wouldn't the torch go out?

You said that Billy Tyne A.K.A. Goerge Clooney the Captain went underwater and the torch stayed on. Well, yea, maybe you didn't know, but they supply all S.V.'s (sailing vessels) that are commercial w/ water proof torches. Professional divers also use those torches to work in the harbors (I live in Boston, so I've seen them do it)

I'm sorry, but you can use high-powered torches like that underwater. Just like road flares can be used underwater.

Just so you know, "that pole" he was sitting on is an outrigger. Outriggers are use to make the ship more stable in the water by making it wider.
