* Happens to many many people in ''Literature/BlackTideRising''. The entire first two books (and some of the third) focus on the main characters rescuing people from this situation. In many cases they are too late to save them, finding only people who have already died from lack of food or water. The interesting variation of this is that many of the people they go to rescue are on large ships like US Navy and pleasure cruise ships, where the people are trapped in their cabins with limited food and water but no resupply.

* In the first book of the ''Literature/AcrossAJadeSea'' trilogy, Batiya and Chunru end up lost at sea when their ship is attacked. The lifeboat they're on is understocked because it was used in a rescue mission earlier that night.

* On November 23, 1942, British Merchant ship ''SS Benlomond'' was sunk by a German U-boat. The only survivor was a crewman named Poon Lim, who made to an 8-foot life raft containing a small amount of food and water. These soon ran out and Lim had to resort to collecting rainwater, fishing, and even occasionally catching birds into order to survive. Finally in April of 1943, after 133 days, Lim's raft drifted to shore off the coast of Brazil and he was rescued by fishermen. When informed his 133 days was a world record for the longest amount of time surviving in a life raft, he replied "I hope no one will ever have to break that record." While some people would survive a longer amount of time stranded at sea in disabled boats, to this day he still holds the record for longest amount of time surviving in a raft.

* From October of 2005 to August of 2006, three Mexican sailors, Jesús Vidaña, Lucio Rendón, and Salvador Ordonez survived adrift in the Pacific ocean after their fishing boat ran out of fuel. Three other sailors onboard, including the ship's owner, died during the ordeal.

* Happens in ''VideoGame/IllusionOfGaia''.
* Alluded to in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'': Link gets caught in a storm and [[spoiler: apparently]] washes up on a small island. By the end of the game he's [[spoiler: defeated the Nightmares and caused a DreamApocalypse, but he's still stranded in the middle of nowhere with nobody but a psychedelic whale and a couple of seagulls to keep him company]].

''VideoGame/IllusionOfGaia''. This is one of the most loathed parts of the game, as it lasts for ''far'' too long with almost nothing for the player to do (supposedly to make the audience sympathize with the main characters and their boredom, but there is such a thing as overdoing it).
