Re: Really good movie with well done sailing scenes

Wow, that was weird. Some people see ghosts around every corner.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to when it's available for streaming this summer. It sounds like a really interesting movie.

Re: Really good movie with well done sailing scenes

Speaking of sailing movies, The Mercy is available for streaming now. I watched it recently on either Netflix or Prime Video. Big time movie stars (Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz), and I thought a faithful (for the most part) adaptation of "The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst". Some of the sailing scenes were, ahem, better than others, but the movie as a whole was a very good representation of the dread Crowhurst must have felt leaving so unprepared, the pressure he felt to do so, and the increasing strain and stress that eventually drove him mad.

Like Jeff's movie, The Mercy isn't really a "sailing" movie (not much of a market there), but a movie that uses sailing as a backdrop to explore other themes.

FWIW the movie, Styx, is now showing in Baltimore at the Parkway Theater. This is the old movie palace that was renovated and is home of the Maryland Film Festival which operates it.

Re: Really good movie with well done sailing scenes

A previous owner set up our Valiant 40 with all main sail lines running aft to the cockpit. I rarely use the halyard from the cockpit. It is faster and easier for me to raise the main halyard from the mast, by using my body weight then, if needed, put a few wraps on the 2-speed winch, mounted on the mast, crank as needed, then cleat it off at the mast, as is traditional. For me, pulling backwards from the aft cabin bulkhead then crank, crank, cranking on the winch,to get the rest of the main sail up takes too long and is more effort. Reefing, I have to go forward anyway to put the dogbone on the reef hook and all that reefing process for the tack is easier aligned with the halyard control at the mast.

You don't have all the strings for the main led aft. A two line reefing set up would have a separate line to haul down and secure the tack. With your boat set up the way it is, you do have to go forward to hook the tack cringe. My question is why, set it up with a separate line for the tack and you can stay in the cockpit snugly and securely taking care of the reefing. I don't understand the pleasure of going forward in lousy conditions hanging on for dear life to do any of the reefing chores. As they say, 'if it doesn't kill you, it lets you tell about it later.'

Re: Really good movie with well done sailing scenes

I just watched the movie tonight. I thought it was very well done. Loved the early sailing scenes, but as Jeff said, the real plot is more of a moral analysis. Although, the sailing does seem authentic. Itís not going to be a major blockbuster, but it makes you think. Thatís good entertainment.

Re: Really good movie with well done sailing scenes

This clearly isn't a sailing movie. It's is, in fact, a refugee-crisis movie, with a sailboat as the stage. I don't doubt that it's well-done, and pushes the buttons that it intends to push.

As for the boat, seems smaller than 40 feet, though it has an absolutely giant wheel for a boat that size. Would love to know what kind it is.
