Our thanks to YouTube user realmsundastood who uploaded this footage of Disney Dream‘s Captain Guus Verhulst stopping to pick up a couple of stranded boaters on the way to Port Canaveral, Florida.
To forewarn you, there is repetitive and possibly profane music playing in the background for much of the video.
The video shows the final moments of the rescue as the two boaters are transferred onboard. After the rescuers are back onboard, about five minutes into the video, Captain Guus comes over the PA system to say, “You’ll see that we’ve completed successfully the taking over of the two persons in distress. (Cheers.) What you have seen is a … maritime tradition, that we help each other at sea.”
