Another vote for Deep Water. It was a very moving documentary about the journey one's mind makes while alone at sea.

No one has mentioned Water world, the movie was crap but you could drool over the big tricycle (till it got trashed, turn it off at that point).

See post #16, cal40john.

PS: At the time this film was made, it became legendary in Hollywood for going waaaay over budget. The story that ultimately emerged was that it was intentional, and designed to "encourage" the Japanese, who had purchased Universal Studios not many years prior, to cut their losses and flee.

I have no first-hand knowledge whether that's true, or not, but that turned out to be the result.

There was a movie about a bunch of kids that spend the summer sailing on a lake, I watched it until the tape broke when I was younger. I'm not certain of the name. .. 'Swallows and Amazons' ...I think. I'm going to track it down and see if it is still as enjoyable to watch as an adult - at any rate, sailing kids will probably like it.

The World in His Arms is a 1952 seafaring adventure film made by Universal International Pictures. It was directed by Raoul Walsh and stars Gregory Peck, Ann Blyth and Anthony Quinn. It has a great race between two schooners from SF to Alaska.

The Riddle of the Sands seems to be available in PAL only. Anyone know of a U.S. source for a DVD?
