13. They made a movie about this: "WaterWorld" starring Kevin Costner
"In a future where the polar ice caps have melted and most of Earth is underwater, a mutated mariner fights starvation and outlaw "smokers," and reluctantly helps a woman and a young girl try to find dry land." /

It was a pretty good movie, it's like Mad Max on sailboats and is probably a more accurate depiction of what life would be like for these "boat people" refugees.
