If you read the linked story, the Director is an avid sailor, enough to have chosen a pretty specific boat to sink. Don't get all twisted up in accuracy because this is not a movie for sailors, it is for the masses who would not understand the proper protocol, or what kind of tools one uses while atop the mast or whether said boat has a Bimini (?). Seriously, questioning the quality of a movie based on a few technical details is like telling Chef2sail that Lawry's makes the best prime rib. Just see the damn movie, let the story and character determine its worth. I know I am (sans Admiral, of course).
