Did anyone see Indiana Jones and The Lost Ark of TV?

There was a German Type VII on it near the end of the film - one odd thing was how did Indiana survive alive on top of the submarine for that time on deck without food or water? Well its just a film...

Mr T., Indiana Jones is a very clever guy, The fact that the u-boat was returning to base at high speed meant that they didn't submerge, keeping Indiana dry.... Using limited resources, Indiana grabbed flying fish as they floundered on the deck of the type VII... Collecting rain water in his cloths gave him limited moisture to survive. The fact he was trying to save the life of his woman gave him the strength to achieve this super human task ! ~~~~~~Next question.. ??? Jeff Jones

Indy lashed himself to the persicope with his whip and he rode it through the waves. The boat never went below periscope depth.

Seriously. It is described at length in the novelization.

They actually filmed Indy on the scope at sea for the montage of the sub traveling to the nazi base. But they never used the footage.
Warm regards,
