Also theres a small sloop that gets built on board a navy troop transport by the repair crew for the captain. He used its construction as a way of motivating his people to work harder to meet a deadline for an assault. Its called Away All Boats and came out in 1956. Great movie if you get a chance to see it.

IMDB link: Away All Boats (1956)

I second "Longitude" - not much sailing, but great history and technology.

Master and Commander - though reading the books and they are even better. I just read they are in the talking about it stage for a sequel.

Pirates of the Caribbean, of course

Horatio Hornblower Series

The last Bond film "Quantum Solace" has only one sailing scene in Venice, but it's what I think of everytime I imagine sailing into, well, Venice.

Anyone see a movie , cant remember much of it and a separate thread reminded me of it....

A group of people went off in a sail boat , anchor out and decide to go for a swim only to discover they cant get back on the boat. All the drama happens as they are floating there..some die, some live...

Cant remember the name or anything but would love to watch it again just to see the boat, was an awesome yacht.

Found it!

Open Water 2: Adrift (2006)

Did Anybody Mention this 1?

I can't remember the title, good scary flick for the 1st observer(s),
has Julia Roberts as the abused wife who secretly learns to swim & makes a break for it...

Man I love that line almost at the end

(dialing 911)
"Please send the police, I just shot an intruder"
hangs up the phone (gulp) & he just knows...trigger not yet pulled...
I'l leave those that didn't see it to head to the video store.
gr8 flick.

Not much sailing in the film but too scary for me to watch. The guy was an obsessive compulsive control freak of the worst kind. The kind that only has to fall asleep just once..................

I cant remember the name either, just remember how it made me feel. Every time I see that guy in other films, I immediately sense hes been cast as a bad guy.

The Shipping News The Shipping News (2001)

Seen it twice and still hate the constant talk about how many people died at sea.
When the drowning scene happens, youve already been prepared and expect the worst for Kevin Spacey.

Sad when the poor guy from down south finally repairs his yacht and has a farewell party, but the natives hate to see him go and in a drunken frenzy, they trash his boat so he cant leave.

Having been to Nova Scotia, the landscape of Newfoundland was very familiar, but gee its grim when the seafog rolls in.

Got to watch it

me 3...it IS a gr8 scary flick & makes those previously abused remind themselves (male & female).....Never again!

Also has that gr8 "serves ya right ya bastid!" ending. Saw it 1st time in the theatre w/a wife squeezing hand(until blue)& leaving nail marks that lasted a while...I loved 4 about 6 scenes, boating, rock in light, boating(in storm), new house, & boom. Audience CHEERED in the theatre.
Sweeeeet.

That's an excellent movie, well worth seeking out to see the whole thing. And normally I can't stand Alan Alda who stars in it. But it's a real good one, featuring the late Sandy Dennis.

The Four Seasons (1981)

If this is the movie you're talking about...

Sleeping with the Enemy (1991)

it was not one of Julia's better films IMO.

YUP!
That's it...(always remember when You hear it...titles)
Not 1 of her better films?
That's because the firearm wasn't POINTED at You(!)
You're right in that even as a "leading" character, she wasn't,
however it the role (or any dominated personality type) doesn't "LEAD"...
they just try to "survive".

I wish they'd make a movie about "Capsized"...gr8 Book (fm the perspective on a NON-Sailor aboard a capsized(inverted actually) Trimaran...for a mere 119 days.
Fantastic read...but OT, not a "movie"...yet.

Great, great book. Probably the first modern spy thriller with a theme taken from the "cold war" between Germany and England before the First World War. And it's really about sailing, not just a story with peripheral sailing content.

If I could find the movie (with Michael York) I'd buy it in a second.

Thats a scary concept. When I first got into sailing, I took a lady friend out for an afternoon and anchored off a beach. She stayed aboard working on her tan while I jumped overboard and scrubbed the bottom. Well, imagine my surprise when we can't find the boarding ladder? It was only about as deep as my chest but I couldn't get on that boat to save my life. We tried using the main halliard as a hoist but with no strop, it was cutting me in half, so that didn't work. Took me about a hour of slowly getting hypothermia before someone came along with a ladder on his boat and I got aboard. Lessons learned without too fierce a price.
