    What about Quincy, didn't he live on a sailboat?

    a couple more..

    In the late seventies;

    "Voyage of the Yes", featured a Columbia 26 that was sailed to Hawaii from L.A. by two teens.

    The Dove, true story of Robin Graham who sailed around the world aboard, I believe a Lapworth 24. Then completed the circumnavigation on a 30 footer.

    Voyage of the Yes was the movie that got me into sailing. Both of these films are all about the adventure. Not just a few shots of the boats.

    Laurel and Hardy had a boat once and they were doing it up in a boat yard. They were going to go and catch fish.

    I wish I had that one. The movie not the boat!!

    I don't think so, but I thought it was so cool he lived on a boat.

    found " the wake of the red witch" at a salvation army store and bought it for a dollar and a half...should have saved the change! the movie was horrible! and the sailing footage consisted of the same 15 seconds ( of a beautiful square rigger) played 6 times during the course of the movie.

    Captain Ron is a good one. They use a Formosa 51' Ketch called "Wanderer" in the movie

    How about the "Pirates of the Carabean" serries? The first one has the best sailing sequences.

    Also, another Costner creation; "Water world". It has the politically correct theology that all those that use wind or sun are "good" the all those that burn fuel are "evil". The floating city always makes me chuckle, all the kind and gentle people using kayaks and wind generator live in a peaceful little island of equality, and then the evil "smokers" (fuel burners) attack them to steal their food, make them slaves, and destroying their little haven.

    Even so, there are some good sailing sequences in there. In fact I think in many of Costner films he has worked sailboats into most of his movies, I guess he has a thing for sailboats.

    And what about the oldies like Ben Hur, Jason and the Argonauts, The Golden fleece, and many more. The 13th warrior has a sailing sequence in it, so does The 300.

    Sailing

    Aye, Waterworld had some good sailing in it and that trimaran was a fast boat. Although I don't like Kevin Costner as an actor he did well in that movie.

    Pirates of the Caribbean I have seen a dozen times and have all 3 movies on DVD. The 4th will be out soon I hear.

    If you can find a copy of a movie called "The Voyage of the Yes", get it and watch it. It's with Desi Arnaz Jr. and Michael Evans who are friends and decide to sail around the world together. It's an old movie.

    That movie got me interested in sailing actually, but I have been out of it for many years now.

    african queen; das boat; captain horatio hornblower; mutiny on the bounty; moby dick; father goose; operation petticoat; houseboat; midway; your's, mine and ours; the glass bottom boat; boat trip; away all boats; ghost ship; and finally among personal favorites...the whackiest ship in the army.

    this should get you through at least one portage.
