How do I correct this: 'The old man, however, was not afraid.''?

Update:

He knew even if the boat gets destroyed in the darkest spot of the ocean, he wouldn't die.

Update 2:

PLEASE READ THE UPDATE.

    That sounds pretty good, actually.

    the "However" part indicates that his lack of fear is contrary to what would normally be expected. Presumably, the idea that he will survive no matter what happens could be seen as a reason to have no fear, and thus you would NOT use "However" (there is no contradiction between situation and lack of fear). On the other hand, if the old guy thought he was likely to die, then having no fear would definitely be a "however" situation. Most people do fear dying, even those who have accepted its inevitability.
