    A great fictional drama for sailors and probably without equal ..... until "The Mercy" is released sometime in the next few months.

    A. You didn't mention that, and

    B. I'm referring to the general case as portrayed in the film where the boat would normally be anchored, as it was in the film.

    But I watched it once whilst sitting out under the stars at anchor. You can't get much more "out" than that.

    I also watched the entire last series of "Game of Thrones" with my Sons sitting out on deck in the moonlight with a few beers during the course of our July cruise to Venice.

    Give it a try if you get the chance .... it's so different to "normal life" and is why I love the combination of boats and warm weather.

    So if I hole the boat on a shipping containing, sailing on the tack that fills the boat up with water for a bit, having a shave and climbing the mast completely unnecessarily isn't what I should do??

    Yeah. That was bizarre, why did he sail on the "holed" tack???

    I found it hard to keep watching after that.

    I haven't watched it for a year or two but didn't he climb the mast to reconnect the antenna cable which had become detached at the masthead?

    I'm not sure why it had detached but, once it had become so, I can't see what alternative one would have other than climbing the mast?
