One unlucky boat of fishermen has just brought Ernest Hemingway’s epic adventure to life by being completely dragged underwater by a hooked marlin.

The following photographs were taken by someone on another boat nearby, which rescued the sunken boat’s passengers to safety.

Once the giant fish was hooked, the fishermen put the boat in reverse, which is the next step any experienced fishermen takes if the fish on the end of the line is of above average size.

Then the captain fell down when the boat was going in reverse at full throttle, losing control of the speeding boat.

The speed of the boat accompanied by the flailing fish caused the boat to rock up and down rigorously, eventually taking on too much water to avoid sinking.

The battle took place off the coast of Panama. The sea monster pictured above is still at large.

We’ve got a real Moby Dick of a situation here. Does anybody else feel compelled to venture out to sea to find that same fish and catch him to exact revenge for the boat he wrecked?

We sure do.
