I'd have to agree about the Patrick O'Brian adaptation for film that the original is much better. I still like the film 'Master and Commander' though.
I hate to think what Hollywood would do to Joshua Slocum's book though. Some of you have focused on what boat they would use but I wonder who would you cast in the role of Joshua Slocum himself?
Is Harrison Ford already too old for this role?
One highlight of the plot is when he tells several South African Bishops that his arrival there means that the world is not flat as they try to persuade him it is.
Another scene would be the ghost mariners he describes doing watches with him on the Spray.
I doubt that anyone would make it.
