Frank silently lies in wait for Rocco.
Several miles out to sea, Rocco leaves his men on deck to watch Frank while he goes below. Franks soon sees his opportunity and guns the boat, throwing one henchman overboard and shooting two of the others in the confusion.
Down below, Rocco hears the shots and when his last remaining man refuses to investigate, Rocco kills him. Alone now, Rocco tries to wheedle and negotiate with Frank; Frank remains silent so that Rocco is unsure he is even still alive.
Finally, when Rocco gets no response from topside he ventures up, and Frank kills him. Wounded but victorious, Frank turns the boat around, heading back to Key Largo and the waiting Nora.
