Zeff went into the sea and and saved Sanji. The ship sank and Sanji and Zeff were left stranded on an island. The reason why Zeff saved Sanji is because they had to same dream of finding ALL BLUE. Zeff divided all the food they had. He gave four days worth of food to Sanji, and rest of the big bag to him. Zeff told Sanji to wait on the otherside of the island to see if any ships would come. Sanji divided his food into for 20 days. As days passed, no ship came. Even after 20 days, no ship arrived. Sanji ran out of food and was dying of starvation. So he decided he'd kill Zeff because he had more food, a whole bag full. So when Sanji saw teh bag and ripped it open, it was just treasure, and not food. Zeff actually gave Sanji all the food to him. Sanji asked how did he survive, and Zeff said he ate his own leg to survive (in the anime, Zeff lost his leg while trying to save Sanji from the storm). A few days later, a ship came and they were saved. Since the two were cooks, they decided that they would open up a resturant on the sea so anyone that was hungry could come and eat.
