I've never seen anybody steer that way.
That was just one of a few thousand complaints I had.
Missed it at the theater it came and went so quickly, so rented it yesterday. I'm really glad I didn't pay more than $1.25 to watch it. Maybe I missed the premise and it was supposed to be about a rank amateur going to sea and to show what he did wrong. If that wasn't the original plan it certainly worked out that way.
My first big complaint, he has this giant hole just above the waterline and instead of plugging the hole, even stuffing rags in it or staying on the starboard tack to keep the hole above the water
around forever filing the boat with water
(and shorting out his electrical system
in the process) to look at the container, retrieve his sea anchor
and who knows what else.
If you have a hole in the boat and water is pouring in, the first thing anyone on the planet, even the greenest sailor that ever left the dock
, will do is STOP THE WATER!!!!
From there it never got any better.
Did they have not a single
actual sailor to consult on the movie?
