    Unhappy What is the meaning of "you were going all the way" ?

    Hi guys, Hope you are doing well. I really appreciate if you help me find the meaning of this sentence. Thank you in advance.

    6.A man was talking to him self and said: "Never get out of the boat Unless you were going all the way."
    (I don't get the meaning of bold part.)

    More context is needed.

    It's an idiom

    See:
    go all the way - definition of go all the way by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    all the way:
    From beginning to end; completely:
    drove all the way from Detroit to Pittsburgh.

    Regards

    PS If you need further clsrification, more context is needed, as Bhaisahab says.

    Then after that the main character of the movie who had a mission to find a colonel who is accused for murder said to him self:" That's right, Never get out of the boat unless you were going all the way, Kurts (that colonel) got off the boat and split from the whole program."
