Taking the boat onto the water is the only comfort Victor has, because of the lack of ability to elaborate the truth to anyone else, even Elizabeth.

He looked around the boat and saw black people chained together with sad looks on their faces. That’s when he realized his chances of seeing his home country again were very slim.

If I was to back down and not go on this water slide I knew that I would regret not going when we left for home. The slide was called ¨Tornado¨ and that didn't sound very pleasing to me.
