Sailing/boating movies

A spin-off of the "recommended reading" sticky - what are the best sailing movies, pirate movies or movies of the sea. I think I asked this somewhere else - here's my list:

The Boatniks
The Buccaneer both the 1938 & 1958 versions
Captain Ron
Captains Courageous
Captain Pirate
Das Boat
Dead Calm
Don Street
Dove
The Four Seasons
Knife in Water
Latitude - PBS
Masquerade
Master & Commander
Mutiny on the Bounty
Pirates of the Caribbean series
Shackleton - PBS
Treasure Island with Charlton Heston
White Squall
Wind
The Visitors

General boating:
Jaws
The African Queen
Twilight Zone: Passage on the Lady Anne

Did I miss any.

Scenes: i like the scenes aboard the Tweedle Dee in Joe vs. the Volcano

Sailormon6 will become famous soon enough
You named most of my favorites. You could add the Horatio Hornblower series, because they described some interesting naval battle tactics of the day. I think they were also PBS.

Never saw any sails on the Titanic... besides, it is really just a vehicle for a romance...rather than a movie about boats or boating...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You mean Message in a Bottle with Kevin Costner didn't make the list??!! There was also some sailing in What About Bob, Wedding Crashers, and Failure to Launch.

True trivia--the schooner named the Woodwind that was used in Wedding Crashers was the actual Woodwind of Woodwind Tours, based in Annapolis. They filmed a number of scenes in St. Michaels, MD. There are two boats (the other is Woodwind II) and they're out all the time on the Bay near Annapolis. Great looking boats.

Of course, WaterWorld should be on the list... Kevin's trimaran was a very neat beastie... with a ballista and the pop-out wind generator.

btrayfors will become famous soon enough btrayfors will become famous soon enough
"The Weight of Water" with Elizabeth Hurley and Sean Penn - great ambiance and, esp., foredeck scene :-)

"Ghost Ship" unfortunately not likely to make the list, despite Julianna Margulies' valiant attempts.
