Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

I think the issue is that it very easily could have been made more "true to sailing" and yet still been true to the writer's and director's intent.

How about a bucket? How much would that have cost? And, how about a little sense of urgency? I just can't imagine a sailor causally wading around in waist high water in their boat...

It is not the "errors" that detract from the movie, but just the lack of realism. All sailors make "errors."
