I'll try to answer your question, the movie first of all is BASED on a true story, meaning, the people and the situation (the Perfect Storm -the 3 storm convergence) was real. The first half of the story is pretty accurate to what happened-based on interviews done by Sebastian Junger who wrote the book of the same name. The conversations on the boat, shark attacks, loss of the radio receiver are either speculation (like the reciever) or happened to other boats in the storm and old journeys on the Andrea Gail.

The book is the best way to understand it all. There's also been a bunch of articles about the making of this movie. I've written a bunch of links on the board. It's probably easier going to my website than to go searching for them.
