Far superior entertainment and also better technically than 'All is Lost'.

Funny how they had lat and long back to front at the start but got it right later.

"The Boatniks" (Disney 1970) more family oriented humor. Tons of classic small boat porn though. Lots and lots of great old boats. Youtube will charge you 3 bucks to see it. But you can find it for free too.

Sure, you could have one guy that's a cop, one that's a biker, a soldier, a construction worker, a cowboy and an Indian Chief.

Oh wait... that's The Village People.

Re: Funny old movie

Sadly one of the most accurate films I've seen in terms of sailing practice and jargon.

It also explains a lot of the "crew wanted" ads I've seen posted on this forum...

Since you were asking.

I didn't see him ask actually. You need to put this movie into it's 1968 context. We are all laughing at it because of that context.

Re: Funny old movie

Despite the 1960s sexism and a few seconds of racism ("baboons") at the end, the film was mostly good humor and poking fun at the yachting and racing and male and females stereotypes. Reminds me of Gilligans Island, but without a laugh track.

It was funny, cute at times, and those boats looked great sailing. It was filmed on locations in Hawaii and features most of the action taking place on real sailing sailboats. The ketch looked very nice.

I think the producers did a good job of the scenes and cinematography at sea, something that today is usually done in a studio with CGI or in a tank.

The skipper had his helmsman wear a PFD, and this saves his life in the MOB scene.

Thanks for sharing the movie link.
