Looks like it could be a good one, as long as it isnt full of the agonizing parts like Dead Calm. I wouldnt call Wind the worst, I like that, and I love my Womper! Id say the worst movie featuring a sailboat would be Waterworld, Thats a slick tri though. A long time ago I read that there were two boats, one that sailed and one that was a movie prop for the slick looking stuff like the telescopic boom. Anybody know where those boats went? From the stern shot in the trailer the boat looks like a Cal 35 possibly, very roomy down below. The way the hole was worn through is a bit far fetched for something to happen at sea. When I lived on board the slightest sound that was wrong could wake one up instantly, especially that time the bilge pump kicked on. That was only a cracked fresh water fitting. The movie does hint at one of my personal biggest fears when out away from land and that is hitting a container, thousands of those things get washed off ships every year.
Hollywood does need better consultants, where was Morgan Freeman while it was being made? I wonder if he still has his Shannon 43. Check out how the sailboat tacks are done in Failure to launch,,,
