Yes, an interesting film if you like sailing, being set on a boat
. I saw it some years ago, and remember some scenes still.

Another example of why women
were traditionally considered "bad luck" on ships, as the jealousy of men
in confined places with too few women
can lead to violence.
Another film you might find interesting is :"Kill Cruise.
