The Acantha was struck below the water line and began taking in water. The crew took to the boats, but while they were launching the craft on the weather side, several shots were fired, but no one was hit. After the crew had taken to the small boats, the submarine crew continued to fire at them with rifles and several shots hit the sides, making holes in the gunwales.
