Agreed, it actually was some very good captain'ing (?) of that ship.
What kind of pissed me off with the SS'ers was how long it took them to deploy an inflatable. They wasted time trying to contact the Ady via radio, the Japanese via radio, freakin' Paul via satellite phone, all of this before deploying an inflatable.
Even when the captain told Peter to put a rescue team in the water, Peter responded with something like, "I'm turning the ship to get the Ady on the [whatever] side". Umm, just stop the freakin' ship and deploy the inflatable, it can get there much faster than you.
Even the Japanese were ready to go before the Bob Barker was.
One more thing, the crew of the Ady Gil were saying that they were sinking. They had a wave-runner on the back of the Ady, they could have easily have used it to transport the crew (one or two at a time) to the Barker.
